Delivering Global Cancer Care: An International Study of Medical Oncology Workload

Dear Colleagues in Turkey,

This survey (link below) is being sent to medical oncologists worldwide to understand current global medical oncology workload in high-income and low-middle income countries. To our knowledge there is no contemporary data to describe current global workforce demands for medical oncologists. This survey is being distributed to thousands of medical oncologists and clinical oncologists in dozens of countries. We want to learn from you about clinical volumes and other infrastructure supports available in your practice environment as well as the challenges you face in delivering care. We hope that this information will be useful to national societies in advocating for oncology-specific resources within their own health-care system.


This study has been approved by the Research Ethics Board at Queen’s University in Canada. You are under no obligation to participate. Completion of the survey will be regarded as implied consent to participate. If at any time, you have questions or concerns about this study, you may contact the Principal Investigator, Dr. Christopher Booth, at (613)-533-6000 ext. 78558.  If you have any concerns about your rights as a research participant please contact Dr. Albert Clark, Chair of the Queen's University Health Sciences and Affiliated Teaching Hospitals Research Ethics Board at 1-844-535-2988.

Thank you for supporting this effort in global oncology,
