The European Commission’s recently published Beating Cancer Plan provides a comprehensive and much-needed roadmap for addressing the burden of cancer in the European Union. The plan centres on four key areas of action – prevention, early detection, access to treatment, and improving quality of life – in its efforts to beat cancer and improve patient outcomes. But what does the plan offer for lung cancer, which continues to be Europe’s most fatal cancer?
In this ERS panel discussion, chaired by ERS Advocacy Council Chair Prof. Arzu Yorgancioğlu, expert panellists address this important question. Participants share their perspectives in a virtual roundtable and discuss what Europe’s Beating Cancer plan means for the future of lung cancer care in the EU.
