Lung Cancer & Early Diagnosis: The Evidence Exists for Screening
When: 22 Apr 2018 - 23 Apr 2018
Organiser: European Alliance for Personalised Medicine & Bulgaria Alliance for Person and Personalised Medicine

One of the aims of the conference is to put forward a recommendation to be adopted by the EU Council to facilitate the drawing-up of lung cancer screening guidelines by an Expert Group.

This will take into account the pros and cons of screening programmes in other disease areas, including breast, colorectal and cervical cancers. It is anticipated that the conference will conclude with the signing of a declaration for this purpose.

It is far from new territory for EAPM: earlier in 2017, the Alliance held a high-level conference on lung-cancer screening and guidelines, and also published a White Paper on the subject for dissemination at EU level.

The board of the Alliance has made prevention, screening and early diagnosis as one of its main priorities going forward, a move echoed by its colleagues and partners in Bulgaria.
