Journal of Clinical Pathways spoke with David A Hughes, BSN, about how the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance integrates the patient viewpoint and a collective understanding of value into clinical pathway practice.
Journal of Clinical Pathways spoke with Alex W Bastian, MBA, strategic advisor, ASCO Value In Cancer Task Force, about how his role in the Task Force has impacted his views concerning value-based care, health care reform, and clinical pathways.
