Our Membership with the Midwest Cancer Alliance
We know that cancer patients benefit from a community of care. That’s why we’ve joined the Midwest Cancer Alliance (MCA), an organization that brings together patient care, research and support professionals throughout Kansas and western Missouri. The MCA resources help us provide our cancer patients with more treatment and survivorship options, close to home.
As an MCA member, we collaborate with a network of area cancer professionals to explore the best resources in cancer research. The MCA improves access to leading-edge clinical trials and provides its members with continuing professional education, patient education, networking and outreach opportunities.
What is the MCA?
The MCA, the outreach division of The University of Kansas Cancer Center, links member hospitals, physician groups, cancer support and advocacy organizations, industry and government throughout Kansas and western Missouri. Its purpose is to provide strong support to community oncologists and cancer care professionals. Its goal is to advance the quality and reach of cancer prevention, early detection, treatment and survivorship in the Heartland.
Cancer continues to take a significant toll on the lives of patients as well as their families and friends. The MCA builds on the strengths of cancer professionals in the region to find the best resources. As part of this organization, we are teaming with other cancer care leaders to ensure patients receive the best options to heal.
Advanced care for our patients
Cancer treatment is disruptive enough in our patients’ lives. The MCA’s core goal is to facilitate advanced clinical trials for cancer patients as close to their homes as possible, helping to remove one of the burdens of receiving cancer care.
Through our MCA membership, we’re able to give patients access to some of the latest resources, such as clinical trials. Oncologists affiliated with the MCA can efficiently share information to help diagnose and treat patients, which adds to our knowledge of cancer and advances our highest standards of care.
