There is an increasing number of cancer types and subtypes that can manifest differently in patients based on multiple factors including co-morbidities and overall patient health. Customized, cross-disciplinary cancer care can help to optimize individual patient outcomes. Although healthcare professionals (HCPs), patients, and caregivers have tools available to them to help customize treatment plans for individual patients, they are not being universally implemented and more needs to be done to customize care. HCP evaluations involving patient-reported goals are not standardized and some patients are not comfortable, or able, to proactively engage in decisions around their care, which may further contribute to the problem. What can be developed to best support HCPs and patients to help them customize treatment plans that lead to optimal or better health outcomes? What can be done to help encourage consistent adoption of individualized treatment plans?
