Cancer Care at a Crossroads Conference was held 31 January – 1 February 2019 at Te Papa in Wellington, New Zealand.
Dr Ben Lawrence (NETwork! Project PI) participated in a debate with Prof Richard Sullivan (UK) around “Precision medicine is the future of cancer care”.
The conference was summarized well by this quote published by Prof Sullivan: “We are at a crossroads where our choices, or refusal to make choices, have clear implications for our ability to provide care in the future. How can we provide care, improve options and outcomes for patients with cancer, and do so within a socially responsible, cost-effective, and sustainable framework?”
