The Iowa Cancer Plan addresses cancer workforce needs.

Cancer prevention, screening, treatment, and quality-of-life services involve many different types of qualified health-care workers. These workers must be adequately and appropriately trained, and there must be enough of them in every area of the state to ensure all Iowans receive access to the quality services and care they need.
