Cancer is costly. As new cancer therapies become available that extend survival, and as the US population ages and continues to grow, the cost of cancer care is estimated to reach almost $158 billion in 2020, according to the National Cancer Institute.
More Data Analysis Is Needed to Improve Outcomes, Lower Costs, and Maximize Appropriate Resource Use
The results of several studies have demonstrated that women and men with a cancer diagnosis benefit from interventions to reduce distress and improve quality of life (QOL). However, little is known about the costs and effectiveness of such interventions.
Creative Therapeutic Activities and Support Groups Benefit All Those Involved in Cancer Care
Healthcare is becoming more complex across all disciplines, at all levels, and throughout the world. As a result, practicing medicine that emphasizes the value received from an intervention is increasingly essential to the long-term sustainability of the healthcare delivery model.
