OSUWMC: Multidisciplinary Team-Based Approach to Neuroendocrine Malignancy Theranostics Traditionally the bulk of radiology and nuclear medicine practices have focused on diagnostics. The advent of multiple emerging agents in the theragnostic spectrum are changing practice focus to allow not only targeted diagnosis of disease, but also paired focused therapy. OSUWMC has been an early leader in this exciting frontier, starting to offer Ga-68 Dotatate PET/CT in 2016 to clinical patients for a targeted approach to staging and restaging of Neuroendocrine malignancies shortly after FDA approval. The first to offer this diagnostic tool in the region, OSU has continued to be a leading center in number of patients staged, with over 450 completed to date. With the recent availability of Lu-177 Dotatate, starting in late 2017, OSU was the first and only institution in the region to offer a theragnostic program for late stage patients suffering from well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors. By engaging on the forefront of this clinical service, OSU developed a multi-disciplinary, team-based approach, incorporating leaders from Oncology, Nursing, Radiology, Pharmacy, and Radiation Safety to offer a well-coordinated, efficient, and unique opportunity to patients who previously had very few options. http://www.cancer.osu.edu

Thriving after cancer video
Three years ago Cedar Rapids resident Rhonda Lichnerowicz endured her roughest year to date. Early in the year she lost her job after the company she worked for closed following the flood. A month later she received more devastating news. "I was diagnosed with breast cancer," said Lichnerowicz. "I found a lump and tests revealed a tumor. It was a hard year for me with losing my job and the unexpected breast cancer diagnosis. You just don't think it can get any worse. It was a very rough time." In March, 2009 Lichnerowicz had a double mastectomy. She also went through weeks of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. "I gained about 50 pounds from the medications, steroids and stress," recalled Lichnerowicz. "I was not happy and lacked confidence." Survivorship program As part of her ongoing treatment Lichnerowicz meets with her oncologist every three months. It's part of a Helen G. Nassif Community Cancer Center of Iowa survivorship program that aims to provide quality long-term follow-up care for cancer survivors. "Cancer patients want to know how to remain healthy," said Amy Ganske, Physicians' Clinic of Iowa nurse practitioner. "In the Survivorship Clinic we address any side effects they still may be experiencing, symptoms of cancer reoccurrence and additional screenings they may need. Additionally we address the emotional, financial and social issues that have resulted because of the cancer diagnosis." "All of these programs are wonderful," said Lichnerowicz. "I kind of think they saved me. I can't convey enough how wonderful they are. I participate in several nutrition and exercise programs, including Zumba, which is like a moving support group!" "Rhonda has truly taken a stand for her health and is focused on staying healthy," said Ganske. "These programs will help her get to the next level." "I'm more in control now," said Lichnerowicz. "I've lost about 50 pounds and intend to keep losing. I feel the best I've felt in a long time." For a same-day consult guarantee to the area's only physician-lead, patient-focused Community Cancer Center, call 319/369-7116 or visit communitycancercenter.org. Helen G.

Applying design thinking at Stanford Hospital
Javier Cuevas - Stanford Hospital & Clinics Helen Waters - Stanford Hospital & Clinics Melody Lau - Stanford Hospital & Clinics People diagnosed with cancer undergo unwelcomed life-changing events that launch them and their family members into a ‘new normal’ – essentially an unasked-for way of life. Cancer diagnosis and treatment not only impact the patient, but are also experienced by the patient’s immediate family, work colleagues, and wider circle of relatives and friends. Long-standing habits in our inpatient care models challenge patients and their loved ones to maintain personal presence and sustain their dignity. The purpose of this work is to identify human-centered solutions that significantly enhance the cancer patient experience: acknowledge and celebrate the patient as a person; restore dignity; provide meaningful comfort, convenience and reassurance; and guide patients and family members compassionately and comprehensively through every care transition, including re-entry to their ‘new normal’. The challenges identified reveal that oncology inpatients and their family members experience huge emotional, physical and practical impacts in a short period of time. During these diagnostic and treatment periods, patients are stripped of their sense of self and are placed in a vulnerable, foreign environment where they no longer have control over what is done to their bodies; family members are faced with logistical, pragmatic and organizational hurdles to support the patient – directly and indirectly while the supporting circle of family and friends are limited to ‘caring’ from a distance. The scope of this work is aimed at improving the care experience for the Cancer inpatient, their family members and loved ones. Assumptions addressed through this work include: - Patients want to feel like someone is genuinely looking to care for them before they arrive - Patients want to feel and stay connected to their world – family and friends – during their stay - Patients want to feel like they are well-known and understood as individuals, by everyone they encounter during their stay Design Thinking techniques were used to uncover unmet patient and family member needs. This started by deeply empathizing with patients and family members, through interviews and observations, and proceeded through the Design Thinking stages, concluding with testing ‘low-resolution’ mobile & non-technology prototype solutions with real patients and family members to understand the value of the solutions and gain further insights via empathy. These techniques revealed that there are notable gaps between what patients and family members believe or state to be their preferences and wants vs. where they actually derive value, as evidenced by usage leading to the enhanced patient experience sought. Each of the assumptions, developed and tested through prototypes, were perceived by patients and family members as solutions that delivered warmth and a sense of caring, but failed to address practical needs that were an equally high priority. Lessons learned from this approach indicate the need to further invest in empathizing with extreme users, and to collaborate with analogous organizations that deliver this type of compassionate, high-touch, deep-detail service.

The history of Children's Cancer Institute Australia
Children's Cancer Institute Australia for Medical Research (CCIA) was originally known as The Children's Leukaemia and Cancer Foundation and was founded in May 1976 by a dedicated group of parents and doctors of children with cancer. 1975 was a very difficult year for the Kasses family from Childers, Queensland and the Lough family from Wollongong, New South Wales. Jack and Annette Kasses' daughter Helen, and John and Margaret Lough's son Robbie, had been diagnosed with Leukaemia and life had been thrown into chaos. Helen and Robbie were being treated at Sydney Children's Hospital, Sydney. While it was clear that the doctors were doing all they could to cure the children in their care, it seemed that very little was being done anywhere in Australia to conduct research into the phenomenon of childhood cancer. The need for such research was clear. Hundreds of children were being diagnosed with cancer every year and only half were being cured with the treatments available. Following the loss of his son, John Lough approached his Club, the Apex Club, Wollongong to raise money for research into childhood cancer. The campaign became a national Apex effort, the 'Help a Kid Make it' campaign with a target of $1 million to facilitate research into childhood cancer. Today, we remain the only independant medical research institute in the country devoted to research into the causes, prevention and cure of childhood cancer. Throughout our existence our vision has remained unchanged, to save the lives of all children with cancer and to eliminate their suffering. First established as a Foundation that funded the few, small research projects then being undertaken, CCIA opened its own research laboratories in 1984. Since that time, the Institute has grown to employ over 150 staff and students, and has established a national and international reputation for scientific excellence. Prior to the 1960s, childhood cancer was almost always fatal. Today, as a result of enormous advances in medical research, the survival rate has risen to 70 percent. However, three out of every ten children with cancer do not survive. These are the children that CCIA strives to save.

Cancer Services- Nebraska Medicine—Bellevue
Cancer patients come to Nebraska from all over the world to receive expert cancer care from physicians at Nebraska Medicine. Now, that same expertise is available Nebraska Medicine—Bellevue. A full-service outpatient hematology/oncology clinic and infusion center is now offered to patients at Bellevue. "Our patients' lives are so busy with visits to the doctor, lab tests and imaging studies," said Alissa Marr, MD, medical director of the cancer center at Nebraska Medicine—Bellevue. "It's nice that we can merge all that into one location so they don't have to spend their time moving from one facility to the next." Patients will have access to a team of experienced cancer specialists including medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, nurse practitioners, case manager, nutritionists and social service workers to provide patients a full-service, multi-disciplinary approach to their care. Radiology services and laboratory support are also available at Bellevue. "We felt a strong need to provide these services closer to home and in their own community," said Theresa Franco, executive director of the Cancer Care Service Line at Nebraska Medicine. "Easy access and convenience are critical issues for cancer patients who may need multiple treatments and careful monitoring of their condition. These services will make for more convenient care and an easier commute." "Through our partnership with The Nebraska Medical Center, our patients will get many of the benefits of receiving care from the premiere cancer program in the region whenever possible, but in their own neighborhood," said Julie Vose, MD, chief of Oncology/Hematology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC). "Higher risk patients or those using experimental treatments will be seen by our specialists at The Nebraska Medical Center campus." Nebraska Medicine has a history of providing state-of-the-art cancer services and is recognized nationally and internationally for its cancer care and cutting-edge cancer treatments. Bellevue patients will also have the opportunity to participate in the same clinical trials that are available at Nebraska Medicine—Nebraska Medical Center campus, giving patient access to the newest and most advanced cancer treatments available. Preventive screenings and early detection services also will be available to Nebraska Medicine—Bellevue patients along with educational programs and a cancer survivorship program. The survivorship program is designed to help patients deal with the physical and emotional challenges of fighting cancers as well as the long-term side effects and learning how to return to a normal life again. "This collaboration with the primary care doctors of Nebraska Medicine—Bellevue will continue to develop our cancer program offerings based on their recommendations and the needs of patients in the community," Franco said. For more information on the cancer services available at Nebraska Medicine—Bellevue, visit http://www.bellevuemed.com or call 1.877.763.3001.

The Gynaecological Cancer Centre at the Royal Hospital for Women
The Gynaecological Cancer Centre at the Royal Hospital for Women has been an internationally recognized leader in gynaecological cancer care for over 25 years. Its Director is Professor Neville Hacker, who trained, and then worked on the faculty at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) from 1978 to 1986. The Centre provides multidisciplinary care, with a wide range of experts, who work in a mutually respectful multidisciplinary team. The aim of the centre is to provide the best possible outcome and support for the patient. Compared to most Centres, there is a strong emphasis on surgery, but chemotherapy, radiation therapy, medical expertise, hereditary cancer, palliative care, psychological support and expert nursing and paramedical care are features of the Centre. Clinical research into ovarian, cervical and vulvar cancer in particular has long been a feature of the unit, and for the past 20 years, the unit has been collaborating with a basic research team whose work has been directed at finding a screening test for ovarian cancer. The Centre is also a major training centre in gynaecological cancer care for gynaecologists from all around the world. This includes many from the developing world, who often come as observers for up to 6 months.
