Lars Henrik Jensen:
Medical treatment of patients with colorectal cancer in Denmark
Ugeskr Læger 2018;180:V03180156
In this review, the standard medical treatment of patients with colorectal cancer in Denmark is outlined in a pragmatic way. Three typical patient scenarios are described: the post-operative adjuvant setting, the patient with curable metastasis and the patient in palliative treatment. The biomedical knowledge about the disease and treatment options should always be combined with a patient-centered approach in order to individualise the treatment according to the patient’s values. Furthermore, suggestions for the timing of rehabilitation, palliative care and advance care planning are given.
