EAU21 Patient Day

The first-ever EAU Patient Day took place on Friday 9 July 2021, at the time of the EAU21 Virtual meeting (8-12 July 2021).

We thank our EPAG Members: European Cancer Leagues (ECL), the European Cancer Patient Coalition (ECPC), Europa Uomo, the International Kidney Cancer Coalition (IKCC), the World Bladder Cancer Patient Coalition (WBCPC), and the World Federation for Incontinence and Pelvic Problems (WFIPP) for creating an interesting programme allowing the patient perspective to be injected in the many discussions that took place over the course of Patient Day.

We also thank Astellas Europe, Bayer, Ferring Pharmaceuticals, and Pfizer Inc. for their generous support which made it possible for the EAU Patient Office to offer patient-oriented sessions. The content of our sessions was developed independently from our sponsors.

Our Patient Day encourages open dialogue and seeks to illuminate the needs of patients and their care support system. It also incorporates the role of healthcare professionals.

Visit the Patient Resource Centre to view all sessions.
