Insights Into Cancer – September 10, 2019

Working with your Primary Care Physician through a Cancer Diagnosis

Presented by William Carroll, MD

About the Lecture

Primary care physicians play an essential role in the diagnosis, care and survivorship follow up of patients with cancer. They are often the initial point of contact for patients in obtaining screening or evaluating symptoms, and they may make referrals, coordinate care, and are key team members in managing cancer and non- cancer-related concerns throughout the treatment trajectory. Particularly when treatment is complete, primary care physicians are integral to helping survivors address late effects of treatment, obtain good follow up and take an active role in making the needed lifestyle changes to promote healthy survivorship. This lecture by UCLA internal medicine and Hospitalist Specialist William Carroll, MD addresses how you can best engage with your primary care doctor throughout your cancer experience.
