In advance of the 2013 Quality Care Symposium, ASCO released a second Top Five List in Oncology, as part of the ongoing Choosing Wisely® campaign that brings together the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Foundation, ASCO, and other medical specialty organizations. Cancer.Net provides detailed background information on each of the items on this list, including an explanation of the recommendations, what they mean for patients, and a list of questions to ask their doctors. These summaries, as well as a podcast on the list are available at www.cancer.net/expertsoncancernews.
Patients can also find summaries and a podcast explaining the research highlights from this year’s Quality Care Symposium at www.cancer.net/qualitysymposium. ■
