Reducing Time to Treatment for Cancer Patients

Imagine yourself in your patients’ shoes, feeling the anxiety and fear of having just been diagnosed with cancer.

He discusses barriers we still need to tackle and provides recommendations on how other cancer centers can help make progress on this critical issue.
