ECCAM 2018

This year EuropaColon Slovenia celebrates ECCAM 2018 and we have been very active!

We have a EuropaColon Slovenia official office

After many years we have a nice place for our EuropaColon office near the hospital where we can realise our new programs.

It is a place for our meetings and talking with our members, giving information about EuropaColon, for patients and their relatives, space for storage of our leaflets, brochures and magazines…

Here we organise psychosocial help to patients with gastrointestinal cancer. The help is free of charge, without referral by a doctor and is provided by a clinical psychologist and two psychotherapists.

Inside Institute of Oncology we got a room for Info point where we are giving information and can talk with our patients in a safe place every Monday.

For ECCAM 2018 we organised the Conference for media where we presented our work and the successes of CRC screening program. The conference was presented  on three TV, radio and many newspapers.

In March we published a new edition of Magazine Koloskop on 32 pages. It includes useful information for patients and relatives, some interviews with our respected doctors and also some personal stories of our patients. The magazine is for free in the hospitals, outpatient clinics, some libraries and at lectures for the general public.

In different places arround Slovenia we organised lectures for the general public where  people can talk with specialists of gastrointestinal cancers.

We organised on March 27th a very successful whole day Symposium for the professional public (for doctors and nurses at primary level and for nursing nurses in the field). There was 13 eminent lecturers and 130 participants.

The symposium Modern treatment of gastrointestinal cancers concluded the successful presentation of ECCAM in Slovenia.
