Poland Healthcare MOU with network of American oncology centers.
On October 25th, 2022, the Polish Minister of Health signed an agreement on cooperation with the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) of American oncology centers. The NCCN is a network of 32 leading non-commercial cancer centers in the U.S. focused on treating patients, conducting research, and educating about cancer. The agreement facilitates cooperation on the application of best guidelines in the treatment of cancerous diseases.
The document, Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), signed at the Polish Embassy in Washington D.C. allows cooperation in research on the early diagnosis and treatment of cancer to improve the way cancer patients are handled. The MOU will lead to new potential opportunities for U.S. medical technologies companies in areas such as joint research, training and other activities in early diagnosis and prevention of cancer, cancer treatment as well as educational and training programs. It will allow for a wider implementation of proven treatments as part of the national strategy for oncology in Poland.
Poland is now at the stage of preparing the so-called “National Cancer Network”, which supposed to be different when it comes to cancer treatment used as a standard approach that has been already verified in reality, and American centers can boast they represent the highest quality in the world. Poland translates these procedures, adapts them to local conditions and ensures that the Polish patient who will be treated under this new structure of the National Oncological Network will be treated according to the best standards in the world. The MOU agreement would ensure that these procedures would be updated in line with new treatment technologies.
