C. Daniel Mullins, PhD, talks about the importance of considering the value equation when it comes to treating oncology patients. Oncologists should have conversations with their patients about clinical effectiveness and affordability in order to determine the best course of treatment. This approach is more challenging, but leads to more patient-centered care.
Dr. Mullins emphasizes that the role of oncologists is changing, and they should recognize that treatment cost is an important consideration for patients. Having cost information available for patients is one way oncologists can help patients make decisions about their care.
According to Dr. Mullins, patients are having new conversations with their physicians about the cost of care and their ability to pay for treatment. He points out that some patients are not taking their medications because they cannot afford them, and says that social services need to be established to help these individuals.
