From January 1975 to June 1979, 3,007 new patients have been followed in the Outpatient Clinic of the Division of Radiotherapy and Medical Oncology of the Ospedale Civile, Pordenone. A progressive increase in the number of patients and the validity of follow-up care has been demonstrated. Patients still encounter considerable logistic difficulties, which could be reduced by programming diagnostic procedures the same day of therapy. The organization of a drug service in the Outpatient Clinic, a more active collaboration with the sanitary units working outside the Hospital, and an adequate psychological assistance could solve many of the problems which are superimposed on the direct effects of the disease.
