Lung Cancer Living Room™

The New Networked Patient - H. Jack West, MD - September 17, 2013

Dr. West discusses the recent paradigm shift from the classic top-down, doctor-driven model to the networked patient-driven power of online communities playing a bigger role in guiding treatment - whether it's clinical trials, new drugs, or managing side effects. The group also reflects on the realization that the key to beating lung cancer is within the patients' bodies and that the real challenge is to collect all the patients' data describing this.
