Inter-district oncology centers will be created in the region
Plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Ural Federal District Nikolai Tsukanov held a meeting on the implementation of the federal project “Fight against Oncological Diseases”. The event discussed the problems and prospects of development of nuclear medicine technology.
The plenipotentiary focused on the relevance of the issue under discussion: in the Urals Federal District, the death rate from oncology is in second place.
“A lot is being done in the region for cancer patients,” noted Nikolai Tsukanov. - Nuclear technology in medicine opens up new opportunities, but for further development, improvement of federal legislation, development of regulations and other regulatory documents is required. The country's national goals for the next six years are defined by a presidential decree. In the social sphere, they are aimed primarily at ensuring the natural growth of the population, increasing life expectancy to 78 years. Among the main tasks - increasing the availability of medical care, reducing mortality. "
Acting Governor of the Chelyabinsk Region Alexey Teksler spoke at the district meeting. He noted that a unique oncological school was formed in the Southern Urals, which united reputable practitioners and consolidated efforts with nuclear scientists, established strong ties with leading clinical departments in the country.
“There is a rather serious level of cancer in our region,” Alexey Leonidovich specified. - At the same time, a good school of treatment has been established, but it is necessary to build a system - early diagnosis, determination of the subsequent treatment tactics, the treatment itself and registration and mandatory follow-up monitoring of the patient's condition. For my part, I want to assure that we will pay special attention to this issue. Today we made a decision to create regional centers, where it will be possible to contact the patient and within a few weeks to receive a verification of a possible diagnosis. ”
In the Chelyabinsk region under the federal program over the next four years, 16 interdistrict outpatient oncology centers will be created. Two of them will appear in Magnitogorsk.
