Participate in the 2018 ASCO Practice Census

At ASCO, we believe in serving your practice or institution as well as you serve your patients with cancer. Just as you regularly monitor the health of your patients, ASCO regularly gathers information on what is happening in the oncology practice environment, and we need your help to do so. I encourage your practice or institution to participate in the 2018 ASCO Practice Census. The census is ASCO’s annual survey of the entire U.S. oncology practice community that aims to capture key information on what is happening in today’s practice environment. Gathering information from the Practice Census guides our planning and decision making about how best to respond to member needs. 

This year's survey has been streamlined to focus on two key issues affecting oncology practices today: opioid policies and prescription benefit managers (PBMs). These issues were specifically selected as areas of growing concern for oncology practices about which current and accurate data is much needed. 

Chronicled as part of ASCO’s State of Cancer Care in America initiative, data and insights from the ASCO Practice Census inform the Society’s policy and advocacy efforts, and help shape our direct support to oncology practices. Your participation in this survey is incredibly important as ASCO strives to meet your specific needs and the needs of all ASCO members.

I’d like to thank the nearly 500 practices from all practice settings that responded to the Practice Census in 2017. With your help, we will increase that number this year and have oncology practices in all settings across the United States participate in the 2018 ASCO Practice Census.

By taking a few moments to complete the survey, your practice/institution can help shape the future of cancer care and oncology practice in the United States. 

Take the 2018 ASCO Practice Census today. The first 200 respondents to complete the census will receive a $50 Amazon gift card.
