Cancer is predicted to affect up to 1 in 2 people in the near future and its socio-economic burden is set to become the highest of any other disease group. This outlook, coupled with constrained healthcare budgets, compels us to make the most of very resource we have, to the long-term benefit of patients.
The All.Can group comprises leading representatives from patient organisations, policy makers, healthcare professionals, research and industry. The group’s aim is to identify ways we can optimise the use of our resources in cancer care, by examining what system inefficiencies exist, find examples of good practice and call for concrete policy action based on these findings. This will help define better solutions for sustainable cancer care and improve patient outcomes in the future.
This is your exclusive invite to join us at the All.Can launch event on Wednesday 7th December 2016, 15:30–17:15 CET, Bât. Altiero Spinelli, room A5G-1, in the European Parliament. The event will be followed by a cocktail reception in the Members Saloon of the European Parliament from 17:30 to 18:30.
Meeting highlights will include:
