ECCO 2017 | Addressing inefficiency in cancer care
Martin Gore, PhD, FRCP, CBE from the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation, London, UK discusses why inefficiency in cancer care should be addressed at the European Cancer Congress of the European Cancer Organisation (ECCO) 2017 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Prof. Gore highlights that inefficient cancer care, such as long waiting times and repeated tests, not only lead to financial losses, but also negatively impacts the patient experience by taking up large amounts of patient time, and not just that of health care professionals. He argues that this can best be addressed by taking action guided by patient surveys, rather than just being sympathetic.
