This contributed volume addresses the link between the social environment and cancer in Europe. In this book, the authors document the scope of and specificities regarding both cancer incidence and patient survival, identify main mechanisms and key moments in the formation of putative inequalities, and suggest actions or programs to tackle such inequalities in a European context within the conceptual framework of intervention research. The influence of the social environment on the risk of suffering and dying from cancer is obviously a global phenomenon, as evidenced by a growing number of studies and books. In part, the underlying mechanisms are universal. However, the importance of contextual factors, the networking of surveillance tools (cancer registries), the increasing comparability of the organization of care in different European countries, the availability of a common measure for deprivation in Europe (European Deprivation Index), and the hope of setting up a political Europe makes the extensive study of this phenomenon on a European scale particularly interesting. The book consists of 21 chapters organized under four parts: - Part I – General Considerations and Methodologic Aspects - Part II – Social Disparities in Cancer Incidence and Survival – Reports - Part III – Social Disparities in Cancer Incidence and Survival – Mechanisms - Part IV – Towards an Evidence-Based Policy for Tackling Social Inequalities in Cancer Social Environment and Cancer in Europe: Towards an Evidence-Based Public Health Policy is a unique reference that presents up-to-date, appropriate methods for analysing quantitative data, an attractive feature because of the integrative approach to causal factors that apply the social inequalities in health to the field of cancer. Researchers, public health professionals, social scientists, and oncologists will find this an essential resource for their work and research.
