Health care spending in the United States continues to rise with cancer care consuming a disproportionate amount of that spending. As the US population ages and cancer treatment options become more complex, cost containment strategies have become essential in oncology. Patient-centered decision-making will help to contain costs but requires a well-informed patient who is able to reconcile potential treatment choices with their beliefs and values. J. Surg.
