European Cancer Organisation

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.
