This training programme will provide mid-career cancer healthcare professionals (of all disciplines), industry professionals, patient advocates and those working in regulatory bodies with the expertise required to develop strategic plans, support and collaborate in relevant applied health research, develop implementation approaches and the skillset to support change management within their countries and regions, in order to improve the quality of care and patient outcomes.
The Training Programme will be developed in close collaboration with patients and patient advocates to ensure that we retain a patient-centred approach. The Training Programme will address overarching issues including early diagnosis, specialised multidisciplinary care, patient-centred approaches, integrated care and the systematic use of existing knowledge. It will engender within participants a clear recognition of the importance of Research and Innovation and clinical trials to 21st century patient care
It is intended that the participants of this course will represent many European countries and that they will remain in contact and develop a network for shared approaches and best practice.
Participants will be asked to share examples showing initiatives and challenges to improve clinical practice in their countries during the course.
