European Cancer Organisation

Patient Advisory Committee

To emphasise ECCO’s commitment to its patient interest agenda the Patient Advisory Committee (PAC) was established in 2008. 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.
