Global GI Malignancies

Posted On 2020-12-04 10:46:16

The increasing issues of globalization and caring for our populations have created a unified effort of all healthcare stakeholders worldwide. Population health has emerged to integrate public health, health policy, quality and safety, as well as chronic care management under one roof. Although the concept of population health has been around for generations, a measurable definition of “population-level health outcomes” with the health factors and policy/interventions that influence it was not reported until Kindig and Stoddart in 2003. This focus series of global GI malignancies from a population health management perspective is intended to provide a broad overview of relevant topics.
