Cancer Patient Care: Advocacy in Action
ESMO provides a platform for patient advocacy groups to come together and discuss important topics related to cancer care by co-hosting European Advocacy in Action® Forums at the annual ESMO Congresses.
The Forums are co-organised by the ESMO Cancer Patient Working Group and the producer, Vital Options International, in collaboration with the ECCO Patient Advisory Committee.
Advocacy in Action® Forums are designed to facilitate a global dialogue among cancer patients that spans across cancer types and continents. The discussions bring patients timely and meaningful information that can help them to better understand their disease and learn where to find important information.
Major European and international cancer patient groups, as well as leading oncology professionals, regularly join the annual Advocacy in Action Forums to discuss key issues in patient care.
