Summary: Patient engagement is a National Quality Strategy priority and is especially pertinent to oncology care, since cancer treatment can be complex and involves shared decision making between patients and different health care providers. However, patient engagement remains inconsistently and ineffectively implemented. We convened a round-table discussion with stakeholders and experts in patient engagement to address innovative, practical recommendations for patient engagement in oncology. We highlight emerging ways that provider and patient education can be delivered to support patient engagement, as well as research opportunities associated with engagement in oncology. Keywords: Oncology, patient engagement, reimbursement, policy, shared decision making, learning health system. Citation: Bosworth HB, Pini TM, Walters CB, Sih-Meynier R.
