New Issue Brief: Understanding financial toxicity and cancer

We are excited to announce the release of our latest issue brief, The Financial Toxicity of Cancer.
This issue brief explores the high cost of cancer care and the severe financial and psychological distress this can cause for patients, survivors, caregivers, and families — during treatment and for many years after.
The Financial Toxicity of Cancer examines:

  • the factors that contribute to financial toxicity;
  • the long-term impacts on patients, survivors, and caregivers;
  • and policy and institutional opportunities that can help to reverse this crisis.

Policy makers, health care systems, and communities all have roles to play in addressing financial toxicity.
