Dr Clark DuMontier - Harvard Medical School ​/​ Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, USA

Dr DuMontier talks to ecancer at SIOG 2017 in Warsaw.

He discusses health related quality of life and how it is becoming more important as survival rates increase.

Furthermore, health related quality of life improvements are shown to in turn also improve survival rates.

In fact, he describes how understanding their quality of life goes a long way to predict mortality in those patients - reducing risk up to 50% in breast cancer.

As more patients survive, improving their quality of life during and after treatment becomes more widespread. 

This service has been kindly supported by an unrestricted grant from Janssen Oncology.
