La recommandation de l’INESSS de refuser le remboursement pour le traitement du myélome multiple fait figure d’exception au niveau mondial

This negative recommendation by INESSS raises many concerning questions but most importantly isolates the Quebec patients and treating community on a very distinct and unique island. We see, yet again, the ‘postal code lottery” of access at play in our country. We have to find better, more consistent solutions for Canadian patients.
