NCID interview with Richard Sullivan

Professor Richard Sullivan
Kings College London, UK
The value of cancer care and society
The framing for value cancer care and society is not solely based on finances, but on the principles of how to deliver care, treatment or diagnostic, equally to all patients. Professor Sullivan stresses that good care must be put into context for all non-communicable diseases in each country, as different countries have different burdens with other diseases. The proportion of money going into care does not always correlate to the outcomes because organisations framing the policies and their attitudes are just as important as funding.
