Social and ethical issues in cancer research and treatment

Social and ethical issues are inherent in cancer research and treatment, and their impact is increasingly recognized. These issues relate to the allocation of resources, access to care, informed consent, patient privacy, end-of-life decision-making, and the overall impact of cancer on individuals, families, and society. The session on social and ethical issues in cancer research and treatment will explore these complex issues and discuss the challenges and opportunities for addressing them. It will also examine the role of patient advocates, community stakeholders, and policymakers in shaping cancer research and treatment policies.
