A new chapter in cancer medicine at Charité has been opened. Professor Martin Kreis, the Board Member for Patient Care, emphasized his personal motivation and the significant importance of cancer medicine in the overall context of Charité as he opened the kick-off meeting. Professor Ulrich Keilholz, Director of the Charité Comprehensive Cancer Center, quoted Winston Churchill's "Never waste a good crisis" and underscored that now is the time for all of us to shape and seize opportunities for development.
But what is it about? - It's about optimizing cancer medicine for our patients. That's why the Charité Cancer Strategy 2030+ has taken on the motto "WE CARE." In total, seven action areas along with their respective key results and the teams already involved were presented. Strategic work in these areas will continue shortly.
At the end of the event, Professor Angelika Eggert put the goals developed in the action areas into perspective: "It may look that way, but I can assure you, we are not naive. We know we have embarked on a big program, but we are motivated and believe that these goals are of value."
Professor Lars Bullinger also appealed: "Don't be discouraged. It's not as if we have to reinvent the wheel. In many areas, the projects are already there. We need to bring them together and identify what else we need."
The critical and lively discussion marked a successful start for Charité's Cancer Strategy 2030+, and it demonstrated the willingness of everyone to actively contribute and collectively drive forward this development process.
