Abstract

This resource codifies the US National Cancer Institute's lessons from utilizing a public-private partnership with community hospitals to navigate the change needed to increase patient access to high-quality cancer care, and enhance hospitals' capacity to conduct and support research initiatives. The treatment of complex diseases requires a delivery system capable of translating scientific advances into care that is coordinated across the full continuum; this book offers a blueprint to just such an infrastructure.
