Only one in four Americans say they incorporate cancer prevention into their daily lives, according to ASCO’s third annual National Cancer Opinion Survey. The survey also found low levels of awareness of known cancer risk factors and that nearly one in four young people believes e-cigarettes are harmless and not addictive.
The American Society of Clinical Oncology released its Patient-Centered Oncology Payment (PCOP) model, an alternative payment model, which includes major updates that could yield cost savings up to 8% across the healthcare system.
