All.Can international has launched a report titled ‘Patient insights on cancer care: opportunities for improving efficiency’. It reveals findings from an international survey on the patient perspectives of inefficiencies in cancer care. With insights from almost 4,000 patients in over 10 countries, the report identifies four key areas of opportunity for improvement and highlights the need to establish a sustainable approach to cancer care.
The Patient insights on cancer care: opportunities for improving efficiency report is based on the findings from the All.Can patient survey conducted from January to November, 2018. This is to our knowledge, the first international survey designed to gather patient perspectives on inefficiencies in cancer care i.e. how their care experience could be improved. The survey was open to current and former cancer patients (and their carers) of all ages and with all cancer types.
The survey was conducted internationally, with bespoke versions in ten separate countries: Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Italy, Poland, Spain, Sweden, the UK and the US. There was also a generic international survey available in English, French, German and Spanish.
As a member of All.Can, Save Your Skin Foundation is proud to support this work and we wish to thank all of the Canadian patients, survivors, family members and caregivers that participated in this survey and shared their perspectives about their cancer experiences.
