Risultato della ricerca: Conference contribution

Abstract

This paper investigates 3-years mortality after discharge in patients residing in Sicily (Italy) diagnosed with cancer among: colon, stomach, liver, and lungs, between 1/1/2010 - 31/12/2011. The effect of mobility and socio-economic status on mortality is evaluated through survival analysis approach. Results shows that out-of-region hospitalization is associated with higher survival time; no association of mortality with socio-economic status appears. The extent of patients’ mobility, and its relation with mortality raises regional policy considerations
