William D. Tap, MD, chief of the Sarcoma Medical Oncology Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses the importance of community and academic collaboration in sarcoma.
The treatment of patients with sarcoma is complex, requiring nuanced treatment decisions and collaboration, Tap explains.
For example, liposarcoma consists of a number of different diseases that have intrasubtype heterogeneity that require different types of therapy, says Tap.
As such, community oncologists should partner with academic centers when possible to optimize patient care, Tap concludes.
