Global cancer care is a complex problem to be solved with a systems solution. ICEC is changing global access to radiation and learning more from those on-the-ground about what has to happen to bring this urgently needed therapy to the world.
Developing a comprehensive and sustainable approach to increase access to RT and linear accelerators requires understanding and solving challenges. ICEC is on the front lines of innovation, education, and training.
ICEC knows that global collaboration is not only possible but is the key to dramatically changing the landscape of cancer care in low and lower-middle income countries. Our global multi-national network approach is a unique systems solution to the unacceptable inequality of access to cancer care.
ICEC is looking beyond simply naming the problems with global cancer care to identifying achievable solutions.
It is possible to transform global communities and improve outcomes, care, and societies through innovation and collaboration. ICEC is a pioneer in addressing this issue through evidence and programs.
The ICEC network is built with partners across the globe. Connection with our current and future collaborators and the knowledge we can gain from one another provides ongoing evolution for how to adapt to distinct communities.
Recent decades have seen dramatic changes in healthcare delivery. However, these changes have not been geographically consistent. ICEC has conceptualized a the unique flex-competence approach.
Expertise is all too often lost as professionals prepare to retire from their careers. ICEC is a leader in building successful mentorship programs to share knowledge and in addressing the opportunities with purposeful and healthful aging.
Infectious & Non-Communicable
A key barrier to radiation oncology in underserved global communities is access to trained professionals who can deliver care to those in need. Bringing in the broad experience of community practitioners is a key goal.
ICEC recognizes that cancer care begins with cancer prevention, education, and surveillance. The era of dichotomization of IDs and NCDs is ready for transformation as seen with COVID-19.
Academia and Industry
The gap between research and implementation must be closed to implement truly global cancer care.
It is not enough to talk about the problem. ICEC is disrupting the ideas and barriers to global cancer care that are prohibiting the issue from being adequately addressed.
