How has cancer care in Ukraine been affected by the war?
What are the greatest challenges facing oncologists in the Ukraine at the moment? How many patients are continuing to receive treatments during the Russian invasion? Are healthcare professionals hopeful for the future? And what about COVID-19?
In this special podcast, we welcome Dr Andriy Hrynkiv from the Lviv Regional Cancer Center who helps us explore these questions. Andriy discusses the current situation with Hans Prenen from The Oncology Journal Club podcast.
