European Cancer Congress 2013
ECCO is committed to engaging cancer patient advocates in its mission to uphold the right of all European cancer patients to the best possible treatment.
Since 2009, the European Cancer Congresses include a track entirely dedicated to the patients entitled ‘Patient advocacy & Ethics’ track. The programme of this track is developed by experts from the ECCO Patient Advisory Committee (ECCO PAC) and ESMO.
This track is mostly about getting people to change their mind sets and understand better the ‘desires’ of patients rather than just their perceived ‘needs’.
