Does health care reform open new possibilities for better integrating clinical research
with patient care and medical practice? For a more rational balance of costs and care
through value-based insurance reimbursement? For more ethical approaches to incorporating placebos into clinical trials? And once the doctors speak to these questions,
what are patients to make of their answers?
Experts from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds will address these issues at the Fall
2012 SWOG Group Meeting plenary session, with a patient advocate as rapporteur for
the event.
