Oncology Peer Review On-The-Go: Examining Evidence Underlying the NCCN Guidelines for Hematologic Malignancies

Article

On this CancerNetwork® podcast, we examine the scientific evidence behind the National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines for hematologic malignancies.

This week, the CancerNetwork® editors review a manuscript published in the July issue of the journal ONCOLOGY® titled, “Level of Scientific Evidence Underlying the National Comprehensive Cancer Network Clinical Practice Guidelines for Hematologic Malignancies.” Corresponding author Thejaswi K. Poonacha, MD, MBA, a staff physician and hospitalist in the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Minnesota Medical Center, joined the show to discuss the conclusions of his colleagues.

The conversation focused on the scientific evidence behind the National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines for hematologic malignancies, the different levels of evidence supporting the recommendations, and the main conclusions of the research. Poonacha also shared why he thinks this research is significant for the authors as well as physicians treating patients with hematologic malignancies nationwide.
