Gan To Kagaku Ryoho. 2021 Jun;48(6):749-752.


Based on the basic plan to promoting cancer control programs, a cooperation between designated cancer care hospitals and regional medical institutions was outlined. Regional designated cancer care hospitals supports the system of regional cancer medical treatment cooperation, and prefectural designated cancer care hospital manage a prefectural cancer medical treatment cooperation. Although system is progressing, such as sharing regional cooperation pass and holding multi-facility joint meetings to promote regional cooperation, there are regional disparities, and we believe that further promotion is necessary.
