NEWS: Patient insights on cancer care: opportunities for improving efficiency

Today, 24 July 2019, All.Can international published its new report titled ‘Patient insights on cancer care: opportunities for improving efficiency’. The report reveals findings from an international survey on the patient perspective of inefficiencies in cancer care. With insights from almost 4,000 patients in more than 10 countries, the report identifies four key areas of opportunity for improvement:

  1. Ensure swift, accurate and appropriately delivered diagnosis
  2. Improve information-sharing, support and shared decision-making
  3. Make integrated multidisciplinary care a reality for all patients
  4. Address the financial impact of cancer

These areas were found to be key determinants of inefficiency for patients and represent clear opportunities to make a difference to people and families affected by cancer.
