2011 Stockholm Cancer Congress

Patient Advocacy/Ethics Track

The Patient Advocacy/Ethics Track at the 2011 European Multidisciplinary Cancer Congress in Stockholm was once again an overwhelming success.

ECCO’s Patient Advisory Committee devised an innovative and comprehensive programme aimed at all stakeholders in oncology.

New and unique for 2011 was the Court Room Trial Session with Patient Information on Trial.

2011 European Advocacy in Action Forum during the European Multidisciplinary Cancer Congress in Stockholm

The second European Advocacy in Action Forum was held in Stockholm in September 2011 during the European Multidisciplinary Cancer Congress of which ESMO is a full partner. The Forum was co-organized by the ESMO Cancer Patient Working Group and the producer Vital Options International, in collaboration with the ECCO Patient Advisory Committee (PAC).

Advocacy in Action Forums are designed to facilitate a global dialogue among cancer patients that spans across cancer types and continents. The discussions bring patients important information that can help them to better understand their disease and learn where to find important information. The 2011 Forum focused on the topics of EU legislation for patients, clinical trials information, doctor-patient communication, use of the Internet, the ESMO Guide for Patients with Advanced Cancer, creating national cancer plans and new EU cancer initiatives.

Next European Cancer Congress

Next edition of the Patient Advocacy/Ethics Track will be at the 2013 European Cancer Congress in Amsterdam.(Please bookmark this page for forthcoming announcements.)
