Promoting Health Equity in Cancer Care: A Workshop


Project Scope:

A National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine planning committee will organize and host a 1.5-day public workshop that will examine opportunities to improve health equity across the cancer care continuum. The workshop will feature invited presentations and panel discussions on topics that may include:

  • Opportunities to improve patient access to affordable, high-quality cancer care (e.g., prevention, screening, treatment, clinical trials, palliative care, survivorship care).
  • Strategies to identify and address the intersectionality of structural racism and implicit bias in cancer care delivery.
  • The potential for quality measurement and payment mechanisms to incentivize health equity in cancer care delivery.
  • Clinical practice data collection efforts to better assess and care for patients with cancer (e.g., information on the social determinants of health, patient-reported outcome measures for symptom management).

The planning committee will develop the agenda for the workshop sessions, select and invite speakers and discussants, and moderate the discussions. A proceedings of the presentations and discussions at the workshop will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional guidelines.
