Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cancer treatment patterns have a strong impact on the success of cancer control and on patient and family satisfaction. Quality of care is a relevant aim in cancer cure but despite increased attention to quality, there is still a gap between what we know and what is the standard of care. Cancer management is a complex issue and many differences have been reported across different areas around the world. This Special issue represents the possibility of sharing our experiences, successes and barriers in the delivery of cancer care and it will highlight the role of different strategies for treating cancer and cancer-related side effects as well as preventing and contrasting cancer-related disability. Original articles and reviews are welcome. Relevant research areas include (but are not limited to) prevention strategies, acute treatment phases, rehabilitation and survivorship.

I look forward to receiving your contributions.

Dr. Monica Pinto
Guest Editor
