PhD defense Bruno Vieira: Logistical optimization can shorten radiotherapy waiting times
The Corona crisis has been a wake-up call to us all that
optimizing the logistics of health care processes can make the
difference between life and death. Luckily, radiotherapy treatments
for cancer care is not on a crisis management, but optimizing
logistics can still make a huge difference to patients. In his PhD
Vieira, from the Netherlands Cancer Institute, shows how the
logistics of radiotherapy treatments can be optimized in such a way
that cancer patients benefit from shorter waiting times and more
patient-friendly treatments. Good luck, Bruno!
