The Philippine Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Hepatocellular Carcinoma 2021
The Philippines’ FIRST Clinical Practice Guidelines on Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) is finally published after an arduous process of discussion, reviews and critique of the best available evidence, and consensus meetings with multiple stakeholders.
Borne out of an initiative since 2019, conceptualized with PAHPBS and through DOH, this project aimed to engage with all specialty societies involved in the multidisciplinary management and care of HCC patients.
We are happy to share this with all of our colleagues in internal medicine and gastroenterology, surgery, interventional radiology, medical and HPB & surgical oncology. With the publication and continuous process of updating these guidelines, we hope to usher in an era of optimal liver cancer treatment outcomes nationwide.
