We are pleased to announce the European Cancer Organisation’s affiliation with the Journal of Cancer Policy, specialising in research and reviews on global cancer policy. The European Cancer Organisation believes in the power of combining the efforts and views of its member societies, patient advocacy groups and other stakeholders to achieve consensus and common policy goals.
Mike Morrissey, Chief Executive of the European Cancer Organisation, said:
“With our strategy 2020-2023 centred around cancer policy, advocacy and convening our member societies and patient groups around focused topics, we aim to improve outcomes and the quality of care for cancer patients. We can achieve this through reaching policy agreements, advocating for positive change and speaking up for the European cancer community. As a result, we are delighted to be affiliated with the Journal of Cancer Policy and communicating on cancer policy to the wide audience of their readers.”
Prof Richard Sullivan, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Cancer Policy, said:
“We are delighted to partnering with Europe’s leading public policy organisation for cancer. Evidence-based policy is the cornerstone for national cancer control plans covering education, research and care. We at JCP are delighted to be working with the European Cancer Organisation to make sure that policy and political science research underpins all Member State actions and trans EU Cancer Mission.”
Dr Matti Aapro, President of the European Cancer Organisation and Editor of the Journal of Cancer Policy, said:
“I am delighted that member societies of the European Cancer Organisation and its Patient Advisory Committee decided to accept the offer of the Journal of Cancer Policy to be the official scientific Journal of our Organisation. Our aim is to support all actions that can help European citizens to receive the best possible prevention, diagnostic pathway, treatment and survivor care of cancer, solid tumours or hematological malignancies, from younger to older persons. We hope some of the European actions can help on other continents, and we can learn from other experiences.”
