The INTENT project aims to find solutions for innovative patient-centered cancer care. It targets and involves various types of actors: cancer care providers, patients and policy makers. The aim is to work with these groups to create a better understanding of how to interpret the patient-centered approach and identify ways for improving cancer care in central Europe. Beyond the activities leading to an innovative cancer care model, the project will issue policy recommendations, provide an online benchmarking tool, identify priorities for improving existing systems on local level and create a virtual know-how centre.
The centre will collect and provide good practices, benchmarking results and a pool of innovative ideas to all interested users.Tools and knowledge provided by INTENT will improve quality in cancer care and mobilise health care managers, clinicians and other staff involved. It calls for positive change and thus unlocks the innovation potential of public services.
More information will follow in June 2017.
