Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen!

Die Zahl der veröffentlichten Studien, die für die Betreuung unserer Tumorpatienten von Bedeutung sind, ist kaum mehr überschaubar. Hier hilft uns die Selektion des Teams von Journal Watch. Mit dieser neuen Serie soll eine weitere Auswahl getroffen werden. Diese ist, wie wohl auch die vorgenannte, nicht ohne Subjektivität. Für die Auswahl wichtig war mir ganz besonders die Praxisrelevanz.
