Criterion 24: #176608


In a CME activity titled “Surviving Cancer: What Comes Next?” the faculty consisted of an oncologist who led the surgical treatment, the patient and her adult daughter, and the patient’s primary care physician (PCP). The patient and her daughter shared the story of the diagnosis, surgery, and treatment. The oncologist and PCP shared their perspectives on how the case was guided and how it continues to be informed by shared decision making among them all. The patient’s daughter provided the idea for the activity, to teach other PCPs, oncologists, patients, and families important strategies for communication and active involvement in each phase of the process, including remission.
