Multimorbidity from Surviving Childhood Cancer: Using Data to Improve Shared Decision-Making

In our December CAC2 All-Member webinar, Mariah Forster Olson (Neuroblastoma Children’s Cancer Society) represented the CAC2 Survivorship Interest Group and hosted Nickhill Bhakta, MD, MPH. Dr. Bhakta.  Dr. Bhakta discussed why the academic approach of thinking about one childhood cancer with one treatment exposure with one chronic condition is not a realistic way of solving long-term disease burden experienced by survivors.  He discussed his work and efforts to engage survivorship groups to guide relevant and meaningful improvements in decision-making between all stakeholders involved in the healthcare of the survivor.
