05. Making cancer care more efficient - What role can different stakeholders play?

Organised by All.Can | Secretariat represented by The Health Policy Partnership Achieving greater efficiency in cancer care requires new ways of working between all stakeholders – including healthcare professionals, patients and patient groups, academia, payers, policymakers, the life sciences industry, researchers and also more non-traditional stakeholders such as IT and data providers. This session aims to get people to think differently about how we can foster innovation (and better care for patients) in cancer, looking across the care continuum and among different sectors. Key questions to be addressed in this session: • What is meant by waste and inefficiency in cancer care? • What are concrete examples of solutions and innovations that tackle waste, and how can we do things more efficiently to benefit patients? • What structural, cultural and political barriers hinder implementing solutions at scale? • Whom must we involve to change things (thinking particularly beyond the health sector)?
