US Cancer Care in Crisis, Says IOM Report

'The Institute of Medicine (IOM) committee concluded that the cancer care delivery system is in crisis due to a growing demand for cancer care, increasing complexity of treatment, a shrinking workforce, and rising costs.

Changes across the board are urgently needed to improve the quality of cancer care.
