Improving Quality in Patient Care and Cancer Surveillance

 Dr. John Srigley
  7th-Aug-2009
Description: Pathologists are “Diagnostic Oncologists”. Anatomical pathologists are society’s diagnostic oncologists. Activities cut across the entire cancer care continuum from prevention/screening to diagnosis to prognosis/prediction to disease monitoring. At least 60% of the average pathologist’s time relates to cancer related activities. More pathologist FTEs are devoted to the cancer system than medical oncologists or radiation oncologists.
