This series examines how racism affects the prevention, treatment, and delivery of care to minority communities, and to what extent we have adequately incorporated a culture of equity in all phases of our work and our personal lives. To this end, The Oncologist has invited the submission of papers on a broad spectrum of topics, from disparities in outcomes, to the recruitment and training of minority cancer physicians and scientists, to the personal experiences of minority professionals as they practice cancer medicine and pursue careers in the academic community.
Families are integral in the course of a patient's cancer treatment. In this month's blog, Don Dizon and Shaalan Beg discuss what happens when the family asks that the cancer diagnosis not be disclosed to the patient.
Immunotherapy enhances a cancer patient’s immune system to fight an array of cancers. Immune checkpoint blockade can, however, induce inflammatory side effects known as immune-related Adverse Events (irAE). Because these rare but serious complications need to be quickly detected and properly treated, The Oncologist is devoting a new series designed to enhance the care of patients who may well benefit from therapeutic strategies that involve one or more these powerful immunotherapies.
