EORTC Conferences & Meetings

3rd EORTC Cancer Survivorship Summit

Brussels, BE

Everywhere in Europe the survival rate of cancer has improved. As of today, there are around 10 million European cancer survivors of which more than a third are of working age.

Although not being a death sentence anymore, cancer risks to remain a life sentence preventing survivors to resume normal life. Research shows a higher unemployment rate in cancer survivors as compared to the cancer-free population. Also, individual testimonies illustrate challenges in obtaining health/life insurance, loans and mortgage.

EORTC Courses

Course dedicated to Patients and Caregivers interested in Cancer Clinical Research

Brussels, BE

A two-day course for cancer patient advocates

Resulting from EORTC-ECPC partnership, this course is designed specifically for European patients and/or patient representatives. The goal of this course is to provide cancer patient advocates with a stimulating and challenging two-day training experience leading to a much greater understanding of the whole clinical trials process. Provided the format (two half days), this course shall be considered as an intensive introduction to the subject. The course programme was reviewed by the Programme Committee with majority of patient representatives from different organisations. Participation in this course will enable cancer patient advocates to learn about cancer biology; personalized cancer treatment and care; the organisation of clinical research; and very importantly, how patient groups can become more involved in the design and implementation of clinical trials. Several interactive sessions will enable participants to debate on selected topics with experts from different fields, including researchers, but also more experienced patient advocates.

Who should attend? Patient Group Leaders with some experience in cancer related patient advocacy/patient support/patient information provision and a high interest in understanding clinical research in cancer. Participants should have good English language skills as the course will be conducted only in English.

The objective of this workshop is to train researchers in oncology in various aspects of clinical trial design and to help them to develop a research idea into a structured protocol. Participation is open to researchers with training in surgical, medical or radiation oncology or any branch related to oncology. Preference will be given to early and middle-level researchers working in an academic setting who can demonstrate commitment to continuing research in oncology.

The format of the workshop was a combination of protocol development group sessions, didactic talks, small-group breakaway sessions, office-hours (one-to-one direct consultation with experts) and “homework”. The faculty consisted of international and national experts with extensive experience in oncology research and training in research methodology workshops.
