Hospitals May Stop Providing Cancer Treatments That Fail to Meet Standards

Dozens of hospitals in the Netherlands may stop providing certain cancer treatments, following the release of new standards created by radiologists, cancer specialists, and surgeons. The standards, which are based on waiting lists, specialist training for nursing staff, and the frequency with which the cancer is treated, are focused on improving success rates and treatment levels. It is estimated that more than 50 hospitals in the Netherlands do not meet the new standards for treating stomach cancer and that 24 are not meeting those for rectal cancer.
