Optimal cancer care pathways for head and neck cancers

The optimal cancer care pathways describe the optimal cancer care for specific cancer types. They map the patient journey and its distinct components to promote quality cancer care and patient experiences.

The resources identify specific steps, or critical points along the care pathway and the recommended care at each point.
