Improving cardio-oncology in primary care
The Spanish Society of Cardiology has created a working group on cardio-oncology to ensure collaboration across care settings, with an emphasis on primary care.
It has developed a report outlining communication lines between primary care and specialists and providing guidance on the monitoring and management of people with cancer at risk of heart failure and other cardiovascular diseases. It also promotes activities such as virtual and in-person meetings to facilitate interdisciplinary discussions and integrated care.
