The European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer organises a course dedicated to Patients and Caregivers on February 28-29, 2020 in Brussels.
This course is dedicated to European patients and/or patient representatives. The goal of this course is to provide cancer patient advocates with a stimulating and challenging two-day training experience leading to a much greater understanding of the whole clinical trials process. Provided the format (two half days), this course shall be considered as an intensive introduction to the subject. The course program was reviewed by the Programme Committee with majority of patient representatives from different organisations. Participation in this course will enable cancer patient advocates to learn about cancer biology, personalized cancer treatment and care, regulatory aspect of clinical research, drug development, real world data, and very importantly, patient involvement in the design and implementation of clinical trials. Several interactive sessions will enable participants to debate on selected topics with experts from different fields, including researchers and experienced patient advocates.
