Be An Informed Patient: Navigating GIST NCCN Guidelines

In Part Two of our “Be an Informed Patient” series, The Life Raft Group invites all GIST patients and caregivers to register for our NCCN Webinar taking place on April 6th at 12:00 pm ET. The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) creates guidelines for different diseases to guide physicians in their clinical practice. Dr. Margaret von Mehren serves as the Chair of the sarcoma NCCN guidelines and has been a valuable player along with her medical colleagues on the evolution of the GIST guidelines over the years. In this webinar, Dr. von Mehren will educate GIST patients and caregivers about these guidelines and provide some case study examples of how guidelines fit into the rubric of patient care. The Life Raft Group will also share insights on real world experiences among the patient community with the guidelines.

LRG Senior Director of Data Management & Research, Denisse Montoya, joined Dr. von Mehren to expand further on this topic.
