Did you recently receive a diagnosis of non small cell lung cancer?
GRACE has partnered with Clinical Care Options to develop an interactive online tool to help you understand more about your disease and treatment options. The goal of this tool is to help you better understand your diagnosis of locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC, to better understand your treatment options, and to become partners with the oncology team instead of being a bystander in your cancer care. A series of questions developed by the experts allow you to select information about yourself and your cancer that are necessary to consider when making treatment choices in advanced NSCLC.
Answer a series of multiple-choice questions and then get treatment options chosen by the 5 lung cancer experts listed below.
- David R. Gandara, MD, UC Davis Health
- Melissa L. Johnson, MD, Sarah Cannon
- Suresh S. Ramalingam, MD, Emory Winship Cancer Institute
- Heather Wakelee, MD, Stanford University
- H. Jack West, MD, City of Hope
