Value in Cancer Care

ASCO Releases Value Framework

On June 22, 2015, ASCO released a conceptual framework for assessing the value of new cancer therapies based on treatment benefits, toxicities, and costs. Published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, the initial version of the ASCO Value Framework was made available for a 60-day public comment period during which time ASCO received more than 400 responses. 

Developed by the ASCO Value in Cancer Care Task Force, the framework will ultimately serve as the basis for user-friendly, standardized tools that physicians can use in the clinical setting with their patients to discuss the relative value of new cancer therapies as compared with established treatments.
