The ECCO 2018 European Cancer Summit is much more than a coming-together of leaders in the cancer policy field. By forming high level resolutions on the organisation of cancer care, the Summit represents an important ‘working together’ of diverse stakeholder interests, creating and expressing new consensus on the change required within European health systems to deliver the best care to cancer patients.
Improving the measurement of quality cancer care, addressing financial discrimination endured by cancer survivors and better integrating primary care to improve cancer care are the three major themes of the draft ECCO 2018 European Cancer Summit resolutions published for open consultation.
The draft resolutions were formed via meetings of the ECCO Oncopolicy Committee and ECCO Patient Advisory Committee in April 2018, followed by a wider process of virtual consultation with ECCO members and patient advocates thereafter.
PLEASE NOTE: Consultation closes at 17:00 CEST, Tuesday 21st August 2018.
View the draft resolutions and we welcome submissions from individuals as well as organisations, companies and institutes.
With your input the outcome will be a powerful charter, and roadmap, for organisational improvement in all European health systems.
