Description:
This study examined the treatment practices and referral patterns of cancer patients in the Republic of Ireland focusing in particular on breast and colorectal cancer. Ireland compares poorly with other European countries for cancer incidence and mortality. We have the third highest mortality levels of 15 EU countries for both breast and colorectal cancer. Variations in treatment practices have been shown in other countries but have not been widely documented in Ireland. The aim of the study was to examine the treatment practices and referral patterns for all cancers combined, breast cancer and colorectal cancer, in Ireland, between 1994 and 1997.
Keywords:
