The European Cancer Patient Coalition, representing 300 cancer patient groups from all cancers, plans to hold a Summit within the framework of the Cancer Partnership to rally all cancer patient groups, the oncological and scientific community from across the EU, European and national policy makers and politicians behind the Cancer Partnership to create the momentum for wide-spread action at EU and member state level.

The conference will contribute to the 2nd Health Programme by addressing actions to reduce the burden of cancer, tackle inequalities across the EU, disseminate information and knowledge about the work of the Cancer Partnership. It will bring together other public health initiatives such as the health promotion and prevention, the anti-tobacco campaign, the Obesity platform, the Rare Disease Communication, the Council Recommendation on Cancer Screening of 2003, the work on the Quality Assurance Screening Guidelines, the cancer research initiatives undertaken by DG Research, and the forthcoming "European Partnership for Action Against Cancer".

Safety Improvement For Patients In Europe [S.IM.PAT.IE]

Mobility across EU is a benefit to citizens, able to obtain healthcare outside of their state, but represents at the same time a challenge in relation to the quality of the services provided. Health care payers need to be assured that care purchased across borders is at least as good and as safe as at home. Patients have the right to expect safe care across the Union. There is still a lack of European consensus on the best way to monitor most key patient safety issues. In addition, methodology and interventions for improving safety are diverse and partially not validated. There is a clear need for a concerted EUropean approach. The objective of this project is to use Europe-wide networks of organizations, experts, professionals and other stakeholders to establish, within two years, a common European set of vocabulary, indicators, internal and external instruments for improvement of safety in health care. The set will be disseminated to parties involved.

General objective of the project is to improve health and quality of life of citizens by tackling health inequalities (HI) by means of health promotion. This will be reached by increasing the capacity of stakeholders within European regions to use health promotion interventions to effectively tackle HI as a core part of action plans that access structural funds (SF). Project connects 10 countries from all parts of EU in meaningful partnership, using their existing capacity in reaching synergistic and sustainable effects. Project intends to increase capacity on regional level, which has already been identified as an obstacle in the use of SF. Project`s objective is also to prepare action plan by joining capacity and efforts in different sectors in region to reach comprehensive approach to improve health and reduce HI. Joint action of important stakeholders from different sectors in region will enable comprehensive approach to improve health and reduce HI in fields of health sector, education, employment and environment.
