New Web site launches $1.7 million project to improve European cancer communications
Date:7/20/2009

An initiative to boost cancer prevention, treatment and care throughout Europe by improving communications within the cancer community kicks off today (Monday 20 July) with the launch of a new website: www.eurocancercoms.eu. The project will involve all those with an interest in cancer, from researchers and doctors to patients.

The Eurocancercoms project is an initiative of the European Institute of Oncology and is led by ECCO the European CanCer Organisation and ecancermedicalscience (an online, open access journal). It is funded by a 1.2 million grant from the European Commission's FP7 programme. The aim is to establish a single, efficient network for cancer communication in Europe, and the new website plays a key role in this ambitious initiative.

Professor Alexander M.M. Eggermont, president of ECCO, explained: "There is an urgent need in Europe to improve communications between everyone working in cancer and between them and patients. Europe has an increasing number of cancer patients and worse outcomes for care, despite having better quality clinical research than the USA. Cancer survival is unacceptably variable in different European countries. A previous study (EUROCAN+PLUS) identified poor communication between all those involved in cancer care as one of the main reasons for these poor outcomes. Eurocancercoms aims to address these problems by creating a 'one-stop shop' for the whole cancer community from scientists to patients."

The principal investigator of Eurocancercoms is Professor Umberto Veronesi, scientific director of the European Institute of Oncology in Milan. Professor Eggermont and Professor Gordon McVie (founding editor of ecancermedicalscience) are leading the project, while Richard Sullivan, Professor at King's Health Partners Integrated Cancer Centre at King's College London (UK), is the project manager.
