Health Minister Adam Niedzielski on Tuesday signed an agreement to collaborate with the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) oncology centers in Washington. The agreement provides for collaboration on the use of best guidelines in the treatment of neoplastic diseases.

As the minister told reporters after signing the agreement (the “MoU”), it will allow for the wider implementation of proven treatments.

“We are now at the stage of preparing the so-called National Cancer Network, which is considered to be different in this way when it comes to cancer treatment, in fact we use a standard approach that has already been verified. American centers can be proud. They represent the highest level in the world,” explained the minister.

“We translate these procedures and adapt them to our conditions and ensure that the patient receiving treatment under this new structure of the National Oncology Network is treated according to the best standards in the world” – he emphasized. He noted that the agreement will ensure that these practices are updated in line with new treatment technologies.

NCCN CEO Dr. Robert Carlson said the agreement also aims to expand cooperation between Polish and American centers in the field of cancer prevention and education. He noted that the collaboration so far — with the National Cancer Institute — has turned out to be mutually beneficial.

“As a result of cooperation with Polish experts, we ourselves made new decisions and (obtained) results and modified our treatment methods in America” ​​- he said.

According to Nietzielski, the signing of the memorandum at the level of the ministry allows, among other things, “the addition of the area of ​​clinical trials that can be carried out in centers across the country”.

“The local dimension is working well, the area of ​​knowledge transfer at the system level should also be included,” said the head of the Ministry of Health.

NCCN is a network of 32 leading nonprofit cancer centers in the United States focused on patient care, research, and cancer education.
