An Institute of Medicine report said the U.S. has a "crisis in cancer care delivery" that requires a new path forward to better use care coordination and gather data on quality and outcomes. Care decisions too often are not evidence-based, and many people fail to receive palliative care for symptoms and treatment side effects. The panel's recommendations included providing patients with end-of-life care that reflects their needs, values and wishes.
