Gastric cancer is the fifth most common cancer and the third leading cause of cancer death worldwide. The disease is more widespread in Japan and Korea, while in Europe the incidence varies greatly among countries. In Italy, the incidence ranges between 10 and 20 cases per 100,000. This work aims at designing an optimized Patient Diagnostic Therapeutic Pathway for the Veneto Region characterized by high quality of care and high levels of organizational and economic efficiency. The optimized pathway is the result of the organizational analysis of five centers in terms of healthcare process and critical issues. The optimized Patient Diagnostic Therapeutic Pathway defines a planned communication model during the diagnosis phase and strengthens the multidisciplinary management of the patient with gastric cancer.
Keywords: Process management, gastric cancer, reference pathway, critical issues, implementation areas, focus group.
