    ASCO recently conducted a follow-up survey to assess the impact of the Multidisciplinary Cancer Management Course (MCMC) held in Tbilisi, Georgia in 2019. The MCMC was held in partnership with the Research Institute of Clinical Medicine and the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS).

    Ninety-six percent of respondents said that they had made practice changes based on what they learned at the course. The most frequently reported changes were related to multidisciplinary care, communication with patients and their families, and management of local tumor types. In addition, 93 percent of respondents to the impact assessment said that their participation in tumor boards had increased since attending the course. Finally, 86 percent of respondents reported using skills they learned at the course to provide care to palliative care to patients.
