What can data do to improve quality cancer care in Europe? 

Member organisations of the European CanCer Organisation (ECCO) such as the European Society of Breast Cancer Specialists (EUSOMA), the European Society of Surgical Oncology (ESSO), the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC), the Organisation of European Cancer Institutes (OECI) and others will seek to provide answers to this question. In so doing, policy recommendations will be illuminated to assist the developing EU Cancer Mission and European Beating Cancer Plan in fully utilising data as a tool for improving quality of cancer care in Europe.
