Thank you for supporting this event


Dear colleague,

ecancer is thankful for your participation at the Choosing Wisely: Value Added Cancer Care for India event, celebrated in New Delhi on the 15th and 16th October 2019.  

The topics were approached from the perspective of 'choosing wisely', an initiative recently launched in India which is seeking to reduce low value and harmful practices in cancer care. Thank you to all of the regional and international experts who made such a high level contribution to the meeting.
