Proving the quality of our care

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The concept of quality oncology care isn't new; we all aspire to and usually deliver it. What we haven't done is prove the cost effectiveness of our cancer treatment to payers, patients, and even to ourselves. It's time for oncologists to lead this discussion and direct the process, rather than have it handed to us by middlemen with their own agenda.
