Cancer patient-physician partnership

There are few fields in clinical medicine that are expanding as rapidly as oncology. Don't miss your chance to report on the latest updates in treatment for cancer patients.

This 'one-step educational experience' will focus on conventional medical oncology such as gynaecological and colorectal tumours, as well as emerging fields like psycho-oncology and quality-of-life. ESEC will confront difficult situations and areas of treatment that require special attention. It will address the question of what patients need from their oncologists and encourage open discussion on controversial issues such as Hormone Replacement Therapy, complementary medicine, screening, and new treatments.

The Scottish Minister of Health and Community Care, Mr. Malcolm Chisholm, MSP, will be attending the Conference and giving the Welcome Address during the Opening Ceremony on Thursday evening beginning at 18.00.

Supported by various European cancer groups, a Second European Patient Seminar (Friday and Saturday, 20-21 June 2003) will attempt to move beyond patient-physician communication to patient-physician partnership. Reflecting the true spirit of partnership,

  • Patients have collaborated with oncologists in planning an extremely interesting program,
  • Lectures will be given by both patients and physicians,
  • Patients and oncologists will meet for an interactive joint session, where both sides will express and explain their positions on current issues in oncology.

Come join us and be the first to know what patients want from their ideal cancer doctor, what doctors expect from patients, what can be done to improve communication, reinforce partnership, and ultimately improve healthcare services for cancer patients.

A Press Conference Schedule is attached below.

Free Media Registration is granted at the Conference to all bona fide media representatives.

A Press Centre will provide you with information
