Physicians Practice and Nevada Cancer Institute Partner to Improve Patient Care
BALTIMORE, July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Physicians and patients of community-based medical practices in Nevada and SW Utah will benefit from a new partnership between Physicians Practice(R), America's Leading Practice Management Journal and Nevada Cancer Institute (NVCI). The new partnership will provide resources to help local physicians manage their practices more efficiently, thereby improving patient care.
Under this partnership, Physicians Practice will be mailed monthly, beginning this month, to approximately 5,100 physicians from multiple specialties in Nevada and SW Utah, with articles pertinent to the daily business issues faced by area physicians and their staff. Additionally, the journal will serve as a resource for physicians who are caring for patients with cancer. Physicians can read about clinical trials and scientific research being conducted at NVCI in a feature section of the journal sponsored and written by NVCI.
"Physicians Practice is a unique opportunity to share the resources and oncology care available at Nevada Cancer Institute with community clinicians and their patients," said Nicholas J. Vogelzang, M.D., NVCI director. "We hope the special section, Pathways, will open doors to further collaborations throughout our region that will bring us all closer to developing a cure and offering new hope to cancer patients."
In this month's issue, physicians can read how genetic research being conducted by two internationally renowned geneticists, Drs. Hong Sun, M.D., Ph.D and Hui Zhang, Ph.D, who are working to target cancer cells at their core and help scientists discover ways to eliminate them.
