Quality Cancer Care Week


The European CanCer Organisation (ECCO) is leading a week of awareness-raising and debate stimulation on the topic of quality cancer care: what quality cancer care consists of; how to measure it; and how to implement it.


Join us at the European Parliament

A centrepiece activity of the week will be a multi-stakeholder high-level meeting in the European Parliament on Tuesday, 6 March 2018 at 15h00-17h00.

The event, conducted in combination with the MEPs Against Cancer (MAC) group, will welcome expert speakers to debate and elaborate on:

  • The essential requirements for quality cancer care;

  • Patient perspectives on quality cancer care;

  • Tools to measure quality cancer care; and,
