ICEC: Responding to a Critical Need
Using a three-fold approach ICEC’s program encourages resource-appropriate cancer care using guideline-and protocol-based education, training and treatment in resource-poor settings by:
- enlisting Hubs of expertise to include academic medical centers/universities, private practices and an ICEC Central Hub
- enrolling Expert-Mentors affiliated with a university, practice or ICEC Central Hub including Individual physicians and other necessary allied healthcare workers, Global Health track practitioners and retirees
- identifying Centers – clinics/hospitals/and other care delivery sites in underserved areas, and Associates – physicians/allied healthcare workers seeking mentoring and education to guide the development of cancer care to reach global standards. As expertise of Associates and Centers grows, Associates achieve Expert-Mentor status and Centers become Hubs.
