National Cancer Policy Forum

About

Type: Forum
Topics: Biomedical and Health Research, Diseases, Health Services, Coverage, and Access, Quality and Patient Safety
Board: Board on Health Care Services

The National Cancer Policy Forum serves as a trusted venue in which experts can work collaboratively to identify emerging high-priority policy issues in cancer research and care and to examine those issues through convening activities that promote discussion about opportunities for action. The forum provides a continual focus within the National Academies on cancer, addressing issues in science, clinical medicine, public health, and public policy that are relevant to the goal of reducing the cancer burden, through prevention and by improving the care and outcomes for those diagnosed with cancer. Forum activities inform stakeholders about critical policy issues through published reports and often inform consensus committee studies. The forum has members with a broad range of expertise in cancer, including patient advocates; clinicians; and basic, translational, and clinical scientists. Members represent patients, federal agencies, academia, professional organizations, nonprofits, and industry.
