Dr Frederic Ting speaks to ecancer about the Choosing Wisely Philippines project and its impact.
Cancer treatment has evolved in such a way that it has become very personalised and specific to the needs of the patients.
These new treatment standards can be hard for low-middle income countries to catch up with and this is why conferences like the Choosing Wisely congress are important for guiding oncologists and policymakers in these countries. Limited resources need to be utilised properly for optimum cancer care.
Dr Ting explains what the Choosing Wisely project is, how it started and how this can be utilised by low-middle income countries.
