The IASLC Cancer Care Team Award honors multidisciplinary teams, as nominated by the patients they serve. Exceptional care teams offer the patient seamless and informed communication, as well as an individualized treatment plan based on not just the patient’s needs, but the patient’s wishes. The Cancer Care Team Award aims to highlight this kind of worldwide, outstanding care.
The IASLC Cancer Care Team Award was established in memory of Marilyn Holman, who passed away from lung cancer in 2016. By recognizing Cancer Care Teams across the globe, we hope to spread awareness and speak to the outstanding care that is possible for all lung cancer patients, from the time of diagnosis through treatment.
The IASLC invites and encourages individual patients with lung cancer and/or their caregivers to nominate a multidisciplinary care team who they feel provided exceptional care. Only IASLC Members are eligible to submit nominations for the Cancer Care Team Award. If you are not yet a member, CLICK HERE for information on how to join. IASLC Membership is complimentary for patients and their family members and caregivers. The deadline to submit nominations is April 26, 2023. An international panel will choose one winning team from each of the four regions – North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia/ROW. Winning teams will be announced during the 2023 World Conference on Lung Cancer in Singapore (September 9-12, 2023).
