Overview of CAPE

The objective of the Cancer Advocacy & Patient Education (CAPE) initiative is to create a web-based library of best-practice information that providers in the lung cancer space can give to their patients and caregivers at each point of interaction. The objectives are:

  • To make the time between diagnosis and treatment as productive and meaningful as possible through interactivity and education to meet patients’ psychosocial needs
  • To improve communication and shared decision-making around diagnosis, testing, and treatment between the patient, caregiver, and the cancer treatment team
  • To ensure patient understanding of their diagnostic and treatment journey, individualized to their disease state
