A new blog post by Diarmuid on "From Treatment to Death, The Economics of Cancer Survivorship".
As Diarmuid states "As the number of survivors increases, so will the demand for cancer-related healthcare services. How best to manage this extra demand is likely to be a dilemma faced by various policy-makers in any healthcare system."
As such, this is an extremely important question for economists and those involved in health services research. Please comment on this blogpost and share
