Chugai and C/Can worked together in building a master plan. C/Can made the detailed plan and works with local staffs in its implementation.
The program aims to improve the quality of cancer care in Myanmar. The situation analysis about cancer care was conducted in Yangon and the results showed that the treatment policy for cancer patients was not based on multidisciplinary team discussion, and there was no standard therapy. To improve the quality of cancer care, resource-appropriate guidelines and protocols need to be developed and continuously utilized in clinical practice.
The objectives of the program are:
- To introduce, disseminate and solidify a multidisciplinary and evidence-based clinical decision-making approach for selected types of cancers, prioritized by a situation analysis conducted in Yangon for local healthcare professionals through a series of capacity building activities
- To develop quality cancer guidelines and protocols in Yangon by cooperation with local medical providers. These efforts are translated to tangible positive outcomes for cancer patients by transforming the way cancer care is delivered there.
To accomplish those objectives, Chugai, in partnership with City Cancer Challenge Foundation, plans to provide online education and trainings to develop guidelines (by cooperation with experts such as ASCO), on-the-job training for multidisciplinary collaboration, and leadership communication training over a three-year period (2020-2023).
