She has been extremely helpful in guiding me through my efforts to improve my well-being following more than a year of cancer treatment, including surgery. Annually she provides me a comprehensive updated Treatment Summary and Follow Up Care Plan summarizing important information from my previous treatments and reviews and explains the details. This is in addition to reviewing my current medical condition and providing advice on further improvements I can make to further improve my situation.

Disclosures

Karen E. Kinahan, APRN reported no external professional relationships for calendar year 2021.

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
