ASCO Vision

Shaping the Future of Oncology: Envisioning Cancer Care in 2030

Outcomes of the ASCO Board of Directors Strategic Planning and Visioning Process, 2011-2012

On a fundamental level, predicting the future is always a difficult exercise since the world changes in ways we cannot imagine. Yet anticipating—and preparing for—the future is an absolute necessity for the oncology field. With the number of cancer patients projected to grow dramatically in the years ahead in the United States and worldwide, we must do everything possible to ensure that we are well-positioned to deliver the care they will need.



The ASCO report, “Shaping the Future of Oncology: Envisioning Cancer Care in 2030," presents a vision that will serve as a roadmap to guide ASCO’s policy and programmatic activities—and the care of patients—for many years to come. Your input is essential. We ask you to participate actively in the discussion. ASCO will periodically review and update the vision based on feedback and new developments in the oncology field.
