As new standards of cancer care are being implemented nationwide and our health care system is changing, Triage Cancer hopes to be in the forefront of educating health care providers, and the cancer community in general, so that they can best utilize the valuable tools and resources that are available for their constituencies.
Triage Cancer collaborates with experts in the areas of medicine, mental health, nursing, social work, patient navigation, nutrition, oncofertility, law, employment, education, financial management, insurance, relationships, sexuality and intimacy, pain and palliative care, advocacy, and other areas of cancer survivorship.
The Triage Cancer Scientific Advisory Council provides guidance on substantive areas of cancer survivorship so that we may best serve the cancer community.
