Masterclass Patient Advocates - From Fear to Hope

Not eligible for ESCO credits

19.09.2010  -  22.09.2010

MASTERCLASS

Patient advocacy

Description

Chairs: L.J. Denis, BE - M. Wirth, DE - A. Costa, IT
Educational Advisor: W. Gatzemeier, IT


One of the aims of the Masterclass was to help these countries to learn what is happening in other parts of Europe and to relate this to the needs of men with prostate cancer and the needs of their families. The establishment of support groups, the importance of “quality of life” and the art of living with prostate cancer were all considered.

Medical experts from across Europe presented the latest information and views on treatments relating to many stages of prostate cancer. These included the mainstream treatments of surgery, radiotherapy and hormone treatments as well as more recent developments and the discussion of treatments for more advanced cancer.

Reflecting the location and the focus on Eastern Europe a number of these speakers were from Poland and for part of the Masterclass an emphasis was placed on Health and Cancer in Eastern Europe.

The slides used by speakers have been made available for publication by Europa Uomo and they can be viewed at

Meeting from the Strategic Committee Europa Uomo
Günter Feick and Committee Members
This meeting was especially arranged for non members and contacts from countries outside the European Union. Next year 2011 in Vienna, we plan a patient symposium after the closing day of the European Association of Urology. We believe that we have the capacity and enthusiasm to help the regularization of the inequities in management and treatment in all countries of Europe if we keep solidarity as a verb in our strategic thinking.
