For those working in health-care or health-care related areas
As an observatory dedicated to the problems of thyroid nodular disease and thyroid cancer, the ITCO’s aim is to promote input from and interaction between all sectors with interest in these diseases—patient associations, physicians and nurses, biomedical researchers, health-care policy makers, economists, sociologists, journalists and other communication professionals
The observatory will also allows us to document the complexity of an area with a highly varied environmental, territorial and genetic make-up like Italy. Lastly, the observatory will promote a synergic multi-disciplinary approach to thyroid cancer that exploits the skills, knowledge, and experience of various areas of medicine.
Structured exchanges between experts and ongoing monitoring and analysis of data will facilitate efforts to identify short-, medium- and long-term strategies that can bring about real changes in the management of thyroid tumors.
