Cancer Care Team Award

Excellence as defined by the patient.

Exceptional care for patients with lung cancer is not limited to interactions with any one specialist or care center. Oftentimes delivery of patient care is at its best when multidisciplinary team members offer the patient seamless and informed communication, as well as an individualized treatment plan based on not just the patient’s needs but the patient’s wishes. Knowing that this type of stellar care is happening around the world every day, the IASLC Cancer Care Team Award recognizes these multidisciplinary teams, as nominated by the patients they serve. What more prestigious honor could there be?

Highlighting Worldwide Outstanding Care

We invite and encourage individual patients with lung cancer and their caregivers to nominate a multidisciplinary care team who they feel provided exceptional care. A nomination can include up to six individuals from the care team (e.g., oncologist, surgeon, nurse, palliative care provider, etc.). Nominations are accepted from all around the world. 

Please note that for these purposes, caregivers are defined as non-healthcare professionals who are family members or friends of the patient.

From the four winning teams, one team will be selected as the overall winner. The 2019 Overall Winner was from the Asia/Rest of the World region—the Multidisciplinary Lung Cancer Management team from the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education & Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh, India.
