Center for Cancer Care Liaison Physicians Focus on Improvement in Care
Drs. David Krajcovic and Patricia Limpert, surgeons at St. Luke's Hospital's Center for Cancer Care, also play vital roles as cancer liaison physicians. In these positions, they volunteer their time to provide leadership and direction to establish, maintain and support programs at the Center for Cancer Care as well as the community. The cancer liaison physicians also serve as representatives for the Commission on Cancer (COC) and are responsible for implementing COC initiatives at the local level.

The liaison physicians also promote the use of the National Cancer Data Base, encourage enrollment in clinical trials and are involved in the state cancer plan. In addition, they are advocates for the cancer registry, facilitate accurate physician staging, promote appropriate clinical guidelines and monitor the quality of data reported to the National Cancer Data Base by St. Luke's Hospital.

Objectives for the Center for Cancer Care liaison physicians during the past year included improving the quality of clinical care, promoting community cancer screenings, strengthening the patient navigation program and solidifying relationships with the American Cancer Society and other community groups.
