Just taking opinions on how you guys organize your assessment and plans. I've seen a lot of different ways to do it including regular ole IM numbered plans with most acute stuff on top.

Others
1) Cancer 2) Pain 3) Supportive Care 4) Dispo
1) Cancer 2) Treatment related side effects 3) Supportive Care 4) Dispo

Trying to figure out something I like. Thoughts welcome!

I typically put whatever they're there to see me for (or admitted for) first with all the other stuff coming later in order of importance.

Pro Tip: For clinic patients, keep a running "Hem/Onc History" or "Treatment History" at the top of your note and carry it forward and update it every time you see them. It will make it easy for you and everyone else who sees your patient keep a good handle on what's going on with them.
