European Cancer Patient Coalition (ECPC)
Established in 2003, the European Cancer Patient Coalition (ECPC), is the voice of the European cancer patient community, uniquely representing the interests of all cancer patient groups from the most common to the rare forms of cancer.
ECPC interacts fruitfully with EU institutions and Member States, advocating the patients’ perspective. The organisation is part of the Expert Group on Cancer Control of the European Commission as well as a key participant in the Joint Action on Rare Cancers of the European Commission. ECPC is also involved in five work packages of the EU Joint Action on Cancer Control (CanCon). ECPC has also established partnerships with the most important scientific and medical societies (ESMO, ESTRO, ECCO), research centres and cancer institutes (OECI, EORTC), the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC).
The ECPC and the EAU embarked upon the EAU Patient Information Project on Bladder Cancer in 2015. This collaboration is based on patient feedback and is considered an important step in the development of patient information, bringing together two major players responsible for the dissemination of accurate information to cancer patients throughout Europe.
