ASCO is pleased to announce grant funding from the California HealthCare Foundation to support the Virtual Learning Collaborative (VLC). This pilot project will use the VLC to improve the quality of palliative care in routine medical oncology practice.
ASCO is also collaborating with the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine and Duke University, with funding from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, to harness technology to foster improved palliative care in oncology.
The VLC is a web-based technology platform designed to efficiently disseminate educational tools and resources to support practice improvement. The VLC will include customized learning modules, social networking capabilities, and a toolbox of evidence-based resources to help translate the latest research into practice. The VLC will provide participants with the opportunity to learn best practices in palliative care for oncology through collaboration with their peers.
