In response to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) released new recommendations to support the oncology community as health care institutions across the United States face potentially difficult decisions around the allocation of scarce health care resources while providing care for a growing number of patients.
During a recent ASCO presscast, oncology leaders detailed the impact of COVID-19 on cancer care, the federal government and cancer community’s response, and made recommendations for moving forward. They also shared new data and laid out specific steps that need to be taken to appropriately sustain high-quality cancer care throughout the crisis and beyond.
The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) released ASCO Special Report: A Guide to Cancer Care Delivery During the COVID-19 Pandemic, which provides detailed guidance to oncology practices on the immediate and short-term steps that should be taken to protect the safety of patients and healthcare staff before resuming more routine care operations during the COVID-19 public health crisis.
