PlatformQ Health Launches Shared Education Program in Bladder Cancer, Aligning Health Care Professionals and Patient Dialogue Through Education

Trustworthy and engaging education is a critical component when moving patients from those receiving care to active participants in their journey

PlatformQ Health, in collaboration with the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network (BCAN) and faculty from Mount Sinai School of Medicine and the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, will present a series of live-online and enduring programs in bladder cancer to help educate and facilitate collaboration between doctors, patients and their larger care teams, with sessions dedicated to HCPs and patients, respectively. Both live, interactive programs will be made available on demand following the initial broadcast.

“This pair of programs addresses the specific educational needs of clinicians and patients. It is designed to support The American Society of Clinical Oncology’s reminder of the importance of a multidisciplinary, team-based clinical approach to care that emphasizes patients taking an active and informed role in treatment decisions,” shared Robert Rosenbloom, CEO PlatformQ Health. “With over 79,000 new cases of bladder cancer expected in the US in 2017, aligning clinician and patient understanding is critical to achieve the best possible outcome for every patient.”
