  • A Supportive CARE Faculty meeting was also held at CHC 2014, for allied healthcare providers focused in hematology. Discussion focused on various education options and linking supportive CARE into CARE hematology and oncology. A separate report providing a Supportive CARE perspective on the content covered at the conference is also being developed and will be available on our website shortly.
