In the United States, approximately 14 million people have had cancer and more than 1.6 million new cases are diagnosed each year. By 2022, it is projected that there will be 18 million cancer survivors and, by 2030, cancer incidence is expected to rise to 2.3 million. The new report examines opportunities for and challenges to delivering high-quality cancer care and provides recommendations for its improvement. It also updates the 1999 Institute of Medicine report Ensuring Quality Cancer Care.

Dr. Patricia Ganz, chair of the IOM study committee, is a Professor of Health Policy and Management at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health.
