GW Cancer Center Launches Online Community of Practice for Patient-centered Care

The George Washington University (GW) Cancer Center is pleased to announce the launch of the first-ever online Community of Practice for patient-centered cancer care. Supported by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) through a $250, health 000 Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award, prostate the GW Cancer Center built on existing dissemination efforts to develop an online site called the Generation and Translation of Evidence (GATE).
