Access to Innovation

Innovation in cancer care is about so much more than medicines. In recent decades, cancer care has seen improvements in:

  • the speed and accuracy of diagnostic procedures; 
  • the effectiveness of surgery, radiation therapy; 
  • the power of information technology; 
  • and the development of multidisciplinary, specialist-led approaches to care.

Access to Innovation

Cancer patients across Europe deserve access to all of these innovations and public debate is required on how these can be best ensured.

ECCO and its members will set out a manifesto for improved access to innovation in a consensus paper to be published in the European Journal of Cancer.

The paper provides a powerful mandate for ECCO advocacy on the topic, with forthcoming initiatives currently in development.
