Patient Interviews for Developing Regional Oncology Plan


Maine’s cancer disparities and rapidly growing population of cancer, in combination with expanded utilization of the internet, has led MaineHealth to develop a new, virtual Cancer Learning Resource Center. An integral part of MaineHealth’s developing regional oncology plan and a public service to benefit the entire state, the site will go live in the fall of 2010.

Maine Cancer Foundation’s grant will provide focus group sessions to gather critical information on needs, preferences and recommendations from patients and their families. The site will serve patients and their families in a broad service area.
