Coronavirus, Aiom: Postpone visits non-urgent cancer patients
The POSTPONEMENT of the follow-up visits, and activation of pathways of follow-up via mail or telephone. Not only. In the case of cancer patients in active treatment should be considered and discussed case by case the possible postponement of the treatment, based on the ratio of the risks - for the individual and for the community related to access to hospital, and the benefits expected from the treatment itself. It is the position of the Italian Association of Medical Oncology (Aiom), which stresses the need, in front of the health emergency caused by the coronavirus, to postpone, in some cases, the anti-cancer treatments planned.

“The Aiom – say Giordano Beretta and Saverio Cinieri, respectively, national president and president-elect of the scientific society -- is a great solidarity to all the medical oncologists and other healthcare practitioners in the field of oncology that, at the side of the other doctors, nurses, and all health care providers, are facing or preparing to face the health emergency caused by the coronavirus. In particular, our thoughts go out to those who are involved in the first line in the red zone and in the Regions where outbreaks are at present higher. We are aware that due to operational difficulties related to the workload of health personnel, which is already affecting some hospitals, and you will probably see interested in other short-term, it may be necessary to postpone some of the activities planned for the cancer patients. We are in times of great and unforeseen emergency and the entire Nation is called to a demanding test. The moment it is difficult for the everyday practices of us oncologists and patients with cancer who are already engaged in a complex process of the disease. AIOM invites all its members to adhere to - and spread widely - to the directives of the Ministry of Health and other competent authorities, in order to protect the health of all of us and help to limit the contagion”.
