Abstract

Increased knowledge regarding the heterogeneity of Prostate Cancer (PC) and its variable outcomes has generated controversy over the best clinical approach. Nowadays, it is well‑known that patient outcomes and clinical management may be improved by an efficient organization of the national health care system. The Interdisciplinary Group for Oncological Care (GICO) for PC patients was created by our healthcare management company in September 2010. Since then, a multidisciplinary internal report was applied to PC patients. This report highlights our methodology and experience of planning a GICO, and illustrates the results obtained for the management of PC patients before and after the adopted GICO criteria in a single institution, the SS Annunziata Hospital (Chieti, Italy).
