Health Systems Research Seminar

English

The main cancer treatment modalities are surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. The complexity of logistics processes surrounding the preparation of schedules for staff who work in cancer treatment centers is the fact that they involve extremely costly resources, sometimes synchronously. In addition, they are subject to several due dates (i.e., appointments already scheduled, maximum waiting time) and several hazards (i.e., variable preparation time for each patient) and should handle unexpected events like the arrival of patients requiring urgent palliative care.
