In the July podcast for The Journal of Community and Supportive Oncology, Dr David Henry discusses an editorial by Dr Linda bosserman, in which she presents the case for pathways and the importance of processes and team work in paving the way for value-based care. Survivor care is the focus of 2 Original Reports in which investigators report on adolescent and young adult perceptions of cancer survivor care and supportive programming and on the symptoms, unmet need, and quality of life among recent breast cancer survivors. Also in the Original Report section are reports on the impact of loss of income and medicine costs on the financial burden for cancer patients in Australia and the use of a gene-panel for testing for hereditary ovarian cancer. Dr Henry also looks at 2 Case Reports, one in which a patient undergoes multivisceral resection for growing teratoma syndrome and another in which a patient presents with aleukemic acute lymphoblastic leukemia with unusual clinical features. Diabetes management in cancer patients is the topic of a lengthy and informative interview between Dr Henry and Dr Todd Brown.
