Patient Advocacy

European Cancer Congress 2015

Developments and innovations in oncology that will lead to better outcomes can only happen by listening to patients. Without actively listening to the needs and wishes of patients, it will be impossible to fully understand and assess whether treatments are effective and this will be particularly important with the growth of personalised medicine.

This is why the ECC2015 Patient Advocacy Track Committee has worked together with the scientific track chairs to enrich the scientific programme with the patient perspective.

Patient Advisory Committee

ECCO – the European CanCer Organisation – follows the philosophy that every cancer patient deserves the best. To deliver on this thinking the patient is centered firmly at the core of all ECCO activities and educational programmes.

To emphasise ECCO’s commitment to its patient interest agenda the Patient Advisory Committee (PAC) was established. This timely initiative provides European patient organisations and bodies involved in patient care with a solid platform to express their expectations in solidarity with the professional organisations and afford ECCO direct insight into the issues and challenges faced by cancer patients.
