Cristiane D. Bergerot: Unmet social needs in cancer care across HIC and LMIC

Cristiane D. Bergerot shared on X:

“Our study in JCO Global Oncology explores financial toxicity and unmet social needs in cancer care across HIC and LMIC.

MASCC survey reveals disparities in cost burdens and support availability.”

Dario Trapani, Medical oncologist at the European Institute of Oncology, responded:

This is so timely and important! How health system UHC shape patients’ experience on toxicity seems ‘clear’ but hard to measure, thus to correlate.

With the new data here, there’s a true advancement in such a knowledge! Congratulations for this important work.”
