EP Roundtable on “Fighting Lung Cancer Together as Equals – A Year On”

    CPE is proud to support the organisation of this second roundtable at the European Parliament.

    Following the first gathering held in October 2022, marked by the subsequent launch of the Call to Action on Fighting Lung Together as Equals, Cancer Patients Europe has the pleasure to support the organisation of a second roundtable entitled “Fighting Lung Cancer Together as Equals – A Year On”. This roundtable, hosted by MEP Cristian-Silviu Buşoi, will take place on 9 April, from 17:30 to 19:30 CET at the European Parliament.

    With the EU elections and the review of Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan on the horizon, this policy roundtable will gather key stakeholders from the cancer policy landscape, including academic experts, patient advocacy groups, industry representatives, and members of the EU institutions, to evaluate progress achieved on the Call to Action and discuss the necessary next steps forward to improve outcomes for cancer patients across the whole care pathway.

    During this roundtable, MEP Buşoi and some of the co-signatories of the Call to Action will lead focused discussions on key topics:

    · The importance of early access to diagnosis and innovative treatments in cancer (including lung cancer) for all patients in EU Member States.

    · The impact of varying treatment rates across regions and the prospects for their inclusion in the European Cancer Inequalities Registry, aiming to address and diminish disparities.

    · The necessary next steps required to ensure that the recommendations of the Call to Action on Fighting Lung Cancer are implemented and extended to other types of cancer.

    Should you wish to attend, register here. Looking forward to seeing you at the event!
