Fair Market Value

With a lot of vague talk about salary/compensation/etc., what do people think is fair market value for a mid career non-academic radiation oncologist? Presuming an average workload of 15-20 on beam with a mix of EBRT, SRS, palliative, curative cases, this is what I think is hypothetically fair market value (not a real job!!!) in a reasonable metro area. Think Kansas City or Pittsburgh or Albuquerque, not Rhinelander or San Francisco. Salary + bonus - $450-500k PTO (vacation + sick + CME) -... Fair Market Value

Conclusions This review demonstrates a lack of consensus in both the preoperative assessment and surgical management of GL. Patients receiving excisional procedures tended to be later stage lymphedema. Patients in the excision and flap reconstruction group seemed to have the highest complication rates. Microsurgical LVAs may represent an alternative approach to GL, either alone or in combination with traditional procedures.

Metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is associated with a limited survival when treated with palliative intent platinum-based chemotherapy alone. Recent advances in imaging and therapeutic strategy have identified a subset of patients with limited metastases who may benefit from early local ablative therapy with either surgery or radiotherapy, in addition to standard treatment. Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is increasingly used in the treatment of extra-cranial oligometastatic NSCLC (OM-NSCLC) due its non-invasive conduct and ability to deliver high doses. Clinical evidence supporting the use of SBRT in OM...

The American population is getting older and sicker. More Americans are facing life-threatening illness when approaching end of life. Palliative care has grown to meet the complex needs of this population. And yet, according to a 2017 article in the journal Palliative Care, many people living with a chronic life-threatening illness either do not receive any palliative care, or receive services only in the last phase of their illness. The National Consensus Project Clinical Practice Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care also addressed this issue, stating that a goal of their recently updated guidelines is “to improve...

The objective of this systematic review was to synthesize the evidence on the barriers to palliative and hospice care utilization in older adults with cancer. A systematic literature search was conducted using PubMed, CINAHL, PsycINFO, Embase, and Cochrane Library databases (from inception to 2018) in accordance to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines. Research articles that examined palliative or hospice care utilization in older adults with cancer were included in this review. Fineout-Overholt's Level of Evidence was used for quality appraisal. A total of 19 studies w...

When asked about their preferred location of death, most people say they would like to die at home. Few people say they would like to die in the hospital. Nobody ever says they want to die in a nursing home (NH). But the reality is that many people will live out their final days and take their last breaths in the NH setting. In 2009, more than 1 in 4 decedents in the United States died in an NH. This number is only expected to grow with population aging.
