Dr Stephen Grunberg – University of Vermont, Burlington, USA

Dr Stephen Grunberg talks with ecancer at the 2012 ESMO meeting about the MASCC and its goals.


MASCC helps patients both with supportive care and palliative care, as well as psychosocial issues and survivorship. MASCC meets annually to discuss issues and progress in supportive and palliative care.


Dr Grunberg stresses the importance of improving the patient’s quality of life as well as the disease itself, for example the management of side effects to allow patients to return to work.


The MASCC is also responsible for the establishment of numerous guidelines, many of which ESMO has adopted.
