The Bone Mets project, led by Dr. Tom Boike, Dr. Shruti Jolly, and Dr. Dan Spratt, will explore ways to improve palliative treatment of bone metastases (i.e. reduce treatment time and decrease treatment cost). The group is working towards the kick-off of this project at this time.
Potential Areas of Quality Improvement:
- Choice of fractionation scheme
- Patient-reported outcomes such as pain and time away from work
- Cost of treatment
