At the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), oncologists have a new tool in their fight against cancer, the Clinical Pathways platform. It incorporates new cancer therapies, nevertheless, the Clinical Pathways program provides oncologists with custom treatment options that are specific to their patient and which meet the CTCA’s standard of care. Physicians and their patients receive data that helps them select the best option. For patients, information on response rates, toxicity and more is available on the treatment platform; therefore, patients and their families can make informed decisions about which treatment regimen to pursue. Patients have access to the Clinical Pathways at all five of the CTCA’s locations.
Five Cancer Treatment Centers of America serve adults in Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Tulsa. People visit these locations from all over the world to take advantage of the CTCA’s state-of-the-art technologies and their integrated treatment plans, which include options to ease cancer-related side effects. While cancer patients may choose spiritual support or chiropractic care to help them deal with their cancer, CTCA offers a wide range of supportive therapies in their hospitals, saving patients from traveling to other practitioner’s locations for additional services.
According to this article, CTCA offer patients and their caregivers the opportunity to actively participate in decisions, and with the new Clinical Pathways platform, it is even easier for patients to compare options. Typical options include targeted chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery; however, CTCA offers clinical trials and genetic testing as well.
