Simon Oberst – ECCO 2019 European Cancer Summit
It was a pleasure to meet Simon Oberst (Director of Clinical Development, Cancer Research UK Cambridge Centre; Chair, Organisation of European Cancer Institute [OECI] Accreditation & Designation Programme) at the ECCO 2019 European Cancer Summit in Brussels to discuss the latest exciting updates in quality cancer care and how this is evaluated.
1. Is cancer research, education and patient care sufficiently well-coordinated? Are these activities often too separated, potentially depriving patients of the latest valuable advances or best practice? (0:10)
2. Would the establishment of comprehensive cancer centres (CCCs) ensure improvements and new approaches to manage cancer more effectively? (0:38)
3. Should CCCs attempt to manage all, or focus on specific cancer types? (1:20)
4. Should all patients with cancer have access to a CCC to ensure they receive optimal care throughout their disease course? (1:53)
5. Would economic restrictions limit the establishment and operation of CCCs in many territories and how could these be overcome? (2:52)
Simon Oberst has no conflicts of interest to declare in relation to this video.
