Oncology Brothers Drs Rahul and Rohit Gosain facilitate a podcast discussion between medical oncologist Prof Tanios Bekaii-Saab and Deneen Richmond, a patient advocate and healthcare executive who has herself experienced rectal cancer.

 

Together, they look at how to manage the needs of different patient populations with colorectal cancer, focusing on age, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and access to healthcare.  The experts share their own experiences of practising oncology and surviving cancer.

 

The speakers discuss a range of topics, including:

  • Education and awareness needs of different ethnic groups such as African Americans, Hispanics and Asian Americans and the importance of building trust within these populations
  • The unique needs of younger patients and the challenges they face, such as managing work, caring for family members and children
  • The importance of encouraging screening leading to early diagnosis in these patient groups

 

Clinical takeaways

  • Understanding the diverse needs of different patient populations with colorectal cancer is crucial for delivering effective care.
  • Disparities in access to healthcare services and quality of care exist among different patient populations.
  • Healthcare inequities can be addressed by promoting education and awareness and ensuring culturally sensitive care delivery for all patient populations.
  • Collaboration through patient and caregiver advocates and trusted members of the community can improve overall healthcare quality.
