European policy response to rare cancers | the case of sarcoma

Event description:

Sarcomas ​are ​one ​of ​the ​principal ​groups ​of ​rare ​cancers ​in ​Europe. ​They ​represent ​1% ​of ​all ​cancers ​and ​2% ​of ​all ​cancer-related ​deaths. ​Sarcomas ​have ​some ​of ​the ​worst ​outcomes ​of ​all ​cancers. ​They ​pose ​challenges ​to ​our ​health ​care ​systems ​because ​they ​are ​often ​diagnosed ​at ​a ​late ​stage ​and ​are ​not ​well ​known ​among ​the ​public ​and ​healthcare ​professionals, ​as ​they ​appear ​in ​nearly ​70 ​different ​types. ​The ​event ​will ​include ​addresses ​by ​EU ​Health ​Commissioner ​Andriukaitis, ​Professor ​Paolo ​Casali ​in ​his ​capacity ​as ​Coordinator ​of ​the ​Joint ​Action ​on ​Rare ​Cancers ​(JARC), ​and ​Dr ​Peter ​Naredi ​as ​President ​of ​the ​European ​CanCer ​Organisation ​(ECCO). ​ The following topics will be discussed: • ​Hear ​the ​perspectives ​of ​key ​stakeholders ​on ​how ​to ​reduce ​the ​burden ​of ​sarcoma ​in ​Europe ​and ​discuss ​ongoing ​initiatives ​ • ​Hear ​about ​the ​policy ​recommendations ​of ​the ​Group ​of ​Experts ​on ​how ​to ​advance ​the ​policy ​response ​to ​sarcomas ​across ​Europe ​ • ​Discuss ​what ​steps ​can ​be ​taken ​at ​the ​European ​and ​national ​level ​to ​implement ​these ​recommendations
