MASCC Study Groups


MASCC Study Groups are interest groups devoted to specific topic areas in supportive cancer care. Members of a Study Group conduct research, develop practice guidelines, design educational materials for practitioners to share with patients, and work to raise awareness about supportive care issues. Study Groups serve as a valuable resource, providing expertise to MASCC members, other professional medical societies, and healthcare practitioners generally.
