Improving Cancer Patient Outcomes in Maine:
Together, we can face the unique cancer challenges of Maine and ensure our friends and family receive the best possible care.
Challenges for Maine’s Cancer Patients:
Cancer care is complicated and patients need experienced guides to help them through key decisions about treatment, as well as crucial planning around insurance and medication.
Maine’s unique geographic, demographic and economic challenges create barriers to care for patients in need of testing, treatment and recovery services.
- Less than 3% of cancer patients join a clinical trial. Lack of participation slows the testing of new medications and treatments.
Our 20/20 Targets:
|Reduce Barriers to Care||Expand Patient Navigation Programs||Increase Clinical Trial Participation|
