Howard (Jack) West, MD, Associate Clinical Professor, Medical Oncology, Executive Director, Employer Services, Founder, President and CEO of GRACE
My colleague, Dr. Laurie Gaspar, who is a radiation oncologist at the University of Colorado, worked with several patients, including those in the GRACE community, to develop a survey on decision making by lung cancer patients.  Are there things that physicians and patients can do to make the decision making process easier in some way?  The survey takes approximately 15 minutes or less to complete.    
 
Please consider taking the web survey through this link:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/lungcancerdecisions  
 
Dr. Gaspar and I will share the interesting results from this survey as soon as possible.
 
Thanks!
