Cancer care could be better

While most patients are happy with the cancer care they receive, there is still room for improvement, according to a survey of 4000 cancer patients and carers in 10 countries.

Four key opportunities for improvement were identified: ensure swift, accurate and appropriately delivered diagnosis; improve information-sharing, support and shared decision-making; make integrated multidisciplinary care a reality for all patients; and address the financial impact of cancer.
