Are you an oncology patient? Is a member of your family currently undergoing treatment?
Coping with cancer is difficult and complicated, both physically and emotionally. Patients are often unaware of all the medical and social rights they are entitled to.
The "Oncology Patient Rights Week", to be launched jointly this week by the Israel Cancer Association and the Society for Patients' Rights in Israel, will be featured on the YNET Health Section to help patients and their families receive comprehensive and up-to-date information and to exercise rights relating to oncology treatment.
This awareness week will feature interviews and articles about the right to medical information as well as treatments, innovations in cancer treatment, and National Insurance and healthcare fund rights.
To view how Mrs. Orit Spira, MSW, Director of the Rehabilitation and Welfare Dept. at the ICA, explains how to contact the National Insurance Institute, what forms to fill out and what services are offered, click here.
