Under the Cancer Control Act, the patient involvement in cancer policies has been legislated, and the voices of cancer patients have been reflected in the equalization of cancer medical care and the solution of medical drug lag. Decision support for treatment of cancer patients is being provided, including advanced care planning. On the other hand, the Cancer Societies in Japan has established a patient participation program, and the system will be established in which patients can participate in study design and evaluation in the national cancer control basic plan. Efforts to the patient and public involvement are beginning to take place at Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development(AMED)and clinical research groups.
