“Enhancing patient-centred approaches to optimise early-breast cancer care: a review of current practice and opportunities for improvement in New Zealand” is a research report by Economist Impact examining the existing breast cancer care pathway in New Zealand and the factors that help or hinder the goal of achieving optimal patient-centred care.

The research aims to understand the unmet needs within the health system and opportunities for improvement. We analyse how New Zealand can improve patient-centred care and build awareness, promote screening, early detection, diagnosis and prognosis, and ensure access to high-quality treatment, including supportive and palliative care.
