KCE Reports 307 (2019) Proton therapy is a radiation therapy technique which allows large doses of radiation to be delivered to cancerous tumours without (excessively) “overflowing” to adjacent tissues. There has been much talk of this technique in recent years, since two projects by proton therapy centres are ongoing in Belgium, one in Louvain and the other in Charleroi.
KCE Reports 305 (2019) For several years, KCE has undertaken background work to improve the quality of care to patients with cancer, together with the Cancer Registry Foundation and College of Oncology. Over time, this project should lead to a true system of quality monitoring, including clinical recommendations, quality indicators and a hospital benchmarking and feedback dynamic. This year, efforts have concentrated on head and neck cancers.
