02/23: WiZen Study
Treatment in certified cancer centres of the German Cancer Society (Deutsche Krebsgesellschaft e. V.) increases the chance of survival of cancer patients by up to 26 percent: This central finding of the WiZen study („Effectiveness of Care in Oncological Centres“) is to be incorporated into care in the future. The results of the study will be forwarded to the corresponding institutions in the health care system for examination and implementation. This decision was made by the Innovation Committee of the Federal Joint Committee (G-BA) after evaluating the project results.
