To optimize delivery of high-quality, high-value health care to patients with cancer, oncology care teams must coordinate care across disciplines, optimize care delivery to all patients, and create a team culture across networks of care while remaining focused on patients with complex care needs in an environment where the science is rapidly advancing and healthcare policies are shifting and evolving, particularly in light of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Key areas to be addressed at the 2020 ASCO Quality Care Symposium include approaches to providing care in the context of the global pandemic.

The symposium will also address potential approaches to incorporating telemedicine into delivery of quality cancer care. Educational needs have also been identified regarding current controversies and opportunities related to how to address social determinants of health and financial hardships among cancer patient populations. Related needs have been identified regarding incorporating patient preferences in clinical decision-making and clinical trial design reflective of real-world practice and conditions. With the current emphasis on the delivery of high-value, high-quality care, the symposium will feature strategies to improve care across the spectrum of care with a variety of practical approaches.
