The CARE (Community. Academic. Research. Education.) Faculty recently developed a needs assessment focused on the identification and management of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), led by medical oncologist Dr. Winson Cheung (BCCA). This questionnaire was distributed to Canadian hepatologists to gain their insights on HCC. The goal was to promote a shared understanding of the range of issues, perspectives, and developments related to these issues, framed from a Canadian perspective. We ultimately want to identify at-risk patients earlier, in order to provide patients with optimal treatment. Commentary on this needs assessment was provided by leading hepatologist, Dr. Hemant Shah (Toronto Western Hospital).
