ESMO Patient Engagement Summit: Advancing Cancer Care in Asia-Pacific

Bringing together patient advocates, healthcare professionals and industry representatives to identify regional opportunities and challenges, with the aim of shaping impactful health policy

This first edition of the ESMO Patient Engagement Summit, taking place during ESMO Asia Congress 2024, will serve as a pivotal platform bringing together patient advocates, healthcare professionals, and industry leaders in the region, and reflects ESMO's steadfast commitment to the optimisation of patient care worldwide, the continuous improvement of cancer-specific information and education, the strengthening of patient autonomy, and the support of patient rights

Patient engagement strategies, evidence-based care practices & collaborative decision-making

Attendees and Faculty will explore patient engagement strategies, evidence-based care practices, and the importance of collaborative decision-making in this novel three-day event aiming to advance cancer care. Together we can identify the challenges and opportunities facing patients with cancer in the Asia-Pacific region and begin to work with stakeholders to develop appropriate, patient-centred policies.
