Masterclass 2017


It’s summer and it’s Barcelona in June… so it must be the annual World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancers. This year, in addition to exhibiting the new inflatable colon, EuropaColon held a 2nd Advocacy Masterclass for its Groups adjacent to the main Congress.

The Masterclass, attended by 32 delegates from 23 of its Affiliate and Associate Groups, offered a wide range of presentations covering scientific updates and new developments. This included advances in biomarkers and new medicines plus a look at Biosimilars and how they will be changing the clinical landscape.

There were presentations from some of the Groups sharing examples of new work supporting patients and the highlight of the meeting; a session on happiness and cancer, showing that the seemingly impossible is very possible.

The EU Commission was represented with an update on the results of CanCon Joint Action and the plans for a new initiative on colorectal cancer.

The two-day meeting ended with a half day on digestive cancers, looking at pancreatic and stomach cancer with the aim of recruiting more of the Groups to support patients with these cancers.
