European Health Policy Platform Live webinars
Along with information sharing, we are organising several webinars on improving colorectal cancer screening in the EU, highlighting best practices and sharing lessons learned.
Our first webinar took place on May 27. Thank you to all those 134 participants who attended! Through our discussions, and the Slovenian best-practice example shared by Tit Albreht, it was clear that a good screening process in every country can save many lives across the EU in a cost-effective way. Find out more and access all the slides.
Our second webinar is set to bring stakeholders together on October 7. Titled ‘The Financial of CRC Screening – Better Investments to Save More Lives’ it will explore the facts and figures that demonstrate how effective EU-wide screening can significantly diminish healthcare costs.
