Next week, I will be the 2018 ASCO Annual Meeting in Chicago. Founded in 1964, the American Society of Clinical Oncology is the world’s leading professional organization for physicians and oncology professionals caring for people with cancer.
For the past several months, I have been writing a Law & Ethics column for the ASCO Post. My recent titles have included:
Decision Aids Reflect Patients’ Values and Preferences for Care: So Why Aren’t More Oncologists Using Them?
How to Respond to a Patient’s Discriminatory Request for a Different Clinician
Legal Duties of Clinicians When Terminally Ill Patients With Cancer or Their Surrogates Insist on ‘Futile’ Treatment
Providing Cancer Treatment Without Patient Consent
Medical Aid in Dying: When Legal Safeguards Become Burdensome Obstacles
Informed Consent and the Oncologist: Legal Duties to Discuss Costs of Treatment
