This is the first ASTRO guideline regarding primary liver cancers, and it was published in Practical Radiation Oncology. The centers were randomly assigned to either tailored implementation strategies (three sites; 744 patients) or education-only (three sites; 692 patients). The researchers found that 7.9% and 0.1% of patients at tailored sites and education-only sites, respectively, were referred. Patients at tailored sites had significantly fewer outpatient visits in medical oncology; no differences were seen in utilization of primary care, urgent care, or emergency department visits.
