This trial assesses current biomarker testing practices for common solid cancers in precision oncology in the community setting. Cancer biomarkers are used for diagnosing the disease, determining prognosis, predicting response to a targeted therapy, or monitoring response to therapy. Testing quality, including accuracy and timeliness, is imperative for correct disease prognosis and identification of patients who may or may not benefit from a targeted therapy. Assessing current biomarker testing practices may help doctors identify gaps and variations in testing as well as on potential ?best practices? that may be informative and generalizable to community oncology programs.
An onsite pathology practice is a laboratory (lab) that is financially administered and operated by an NCORP component or subcomponent. This excludes commercial reference laboratories, such as Quest and LabCorp. To describe biomarker testing practices across NCORP components/subcomponents, we will use the pathology practice as the unit of analysis. Participating components/subcomponents should meet [element A] AND [at least one element of B OR C OR D] AND element E.
