Making a Difference in Cancer Prevention and Control
Cancer Screening in the EU, Thursday 1 June 2017
9:00 - 11:00, European Parliament, room A1E-3
Kindly hosted by MEP Pavel Poc
This seminar will highlight the positive achievements of the Council Recommendation 2003 in promoting quality assured organised cancer screening programmes through a presentation of and expert-led discussion on the recent report on cancer screening in the EU.
The seminar will focus on the main findings and recommendations for improving the current situation for organised cancer screening in the EU. It will also consider the future trends and challenges for organised cancer screening programmes taking into account the outcomes from the recently completed joint action on cancer control (Cancon).
It is therefore of high relevance to policy-makers and legislators interested in evidence-based prevention and early detection of cancer; to health professionals engaged with the implementation or evaluation of cancer screening programmes; and to wider stakeholders, especially those representing citizens and patients.
