ECCO 2018: European Cancer Summit Vienna Austria

The ECCO 2018 European Cancer Summit, will be held on 7-9 September 2018 in Vienna, Austria bringing worldwide leaders from the cancer healthcare, patient advocacy and stakeholder communities together in a unique multidisciplinary forum.

The Summit will integrate multidisciplinarity and the patient perspective across three pillars:

  • Outcome Research
    Using real-world data to observe how new treatments and diagnostic modalities have performed in the clinic
  • Health Economics of Cancer Care
    Developing consensus resolutions on the cost-effectiveness and implementation of cancer molecular characterisation and new cancer diagnostics and therapies
  • Organisation of Cancer Care Delivery
    Focusing on the patient voice to determine an agreed vision for guiding and supporting patients through diagnosis, treatment and follow-up in a world facing an ageing population, increasing survivorship and a technological revolution in e-health resources

Connecting science with real life by driving policy evolution at the highest political level the Summit will:

  • Determine consensus resolutions for improving health systems
  • Decide on an action plan for the way forward to ensure ideas translate into policies that will impact daily clinical practice
