The EORTC will present 14 abstracts at ISOQOL 2017 which will be held 18-21 October 2017  in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. 6 abstracts will be presented in Oral Sessions and 8 in Poster Sessions.

These presentations are on behalf of or funded by the EORTC QLG and we are proud to see that EORTC has such a record number of abstracts selected for the ISOQOL 24th Annual Conference.

These abstracts are a perfect illustration of the rapid increase in research and success of collaboration between the EORTC Quality of Life Group, the department, the EORTC Disease-Oriented Groups and other important international collaborators.
