State of oncology 2013

Thursday, 03.10.2013 | 18:00 - 19:30

Organised by F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd

This interactive workshop aims to address these questions head-on in a fast paced speed-networking session, based on the findings of The State of Oncology Report.

  • How can we continue to advance care for people with cancer in Europe in the current financial climate?
  • What public policy changes are needed in order to keep the cancer care promises of the last 50 years?

The report looks at 50 years of change in cancer care worldwide – praising successes and critically examining failures, with a focus on public policy implications for Europe and what lessons should be learned as we strive to ensure another 50 years of progress.

The session will be introduced by lead author, Professor Peter Boyle, followed by speed-networking, where participants will get to know each other’s thoughts and ideas by spending time debating the core issues in pairs.

The session will then gather together the points raised by the audience, inviting them to share their views and ask questions about the report. The conclusions drawn by participants during the workshop will lay the foundations for the next steps of The State of Oncology Report, and the future work based around it.
