Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Primary Care to Oncology Conversations for Change
presented by Total Health
33 Beale Street, Memphis, TN 38103
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are critical to reducing cancer disparities. All people should have the ability to benefit from advancements in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. Our aim is to present this program that will embrace and be inclusive of every community touched by cancer, actively working towards ending cancer disparities.
We believe that a major sector who can benefit in conversations that prompt fundamental change in cancer is the Primary Care physician group, a gatekeeper in many paths to diagnosis, intervention, and managed care. In partnership with this sector of medicine, we can reach communities that have been disproportionately burdened by cancer and who experience greater obstacles to cancer prevention, early detection, treatment, and survival.
Our evening program, focused on developing strong relational patterns and pathways of encouraging conversations on prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer will bring members of the Primary Care community together with members of the oncology multidisciplinary care teams.
- Review clinical applications and diagnostic and therapeutic approaches in primary care, with an emphasis on the care of diverse populations facing a cancer diagnosis
- Discuss support systems in the primary care setting to better reach and treat at risk populations
- Develop inter-disciplinary, multidisciplinary, and cross-modality communication strategies for the holistic treatment of disease
- Encourage candid conversations, independent of race, that directly affect standards and pathways of care in family practice settings and in early cancer care interventions
- Discuss relevant issues in cancer care in the Black community, Hispanic populations, and LGBTQ+ populations —both from a provider and patient perspective
- Discuss and debate challenges in design, treatment, and access to clinical trials for diverse and underrepresented populations
- Understand and engage patient advocacy organization focused on diverse populations
- Discuss financial toxicity in cancer care from the primary care perspective
