Plenary Session—The Patient Journey: Equity of Cancer Care

Presented by: Thomas A. Farrington, Liz Margolies, Shonta Chambers, Maria D. Garcia-Jimenez, and Alyssa A. Schatz

Moderated by: Carmen E. Guerra

Many people with cancer have benefited from the host of therapeutic and research advances across many different tumor types over the past decades. However, not every patient with cancer is afforded the opportunity for such treatments, and there is an assortment of notable barriers to the delivery of equitable care for all. To address the complexity of this important issue in contemporary cancer care, a distinguished panel at the NCCN 2022 Annual Conference, moderated by Carmen E. Guerra, MD, MSCE, explored this topic from several different vantage points, including the patient perspective and the view from inside the LGBTQ+ community. In addition, several panel members explored the constructive steps and initiatives being taken in the clinical, research, and policy realms to improve access to care for all patients with cancer, as well as overall health equity.
