Your life, your responsibility
EuropaColon are proud to host the 2nd Colorectal Cancer Patient Conference (CCPC 2013) in
Barcelona, Spain on the 5th and 6th July at the Hilton Diagonal Mar (please note change of address)
alongside the ESMO 15th World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancers. Following on from the success
of the first CCPC in 2011 ‘The Power of the Patient Voice’ EuropaColon are delighted to have been
successful in our application for part funding of the Conference.
The purpose of CCPC 2013 is to sustain EuropaColon’s efforts to combat the disease across
Europe, to engage, educate, inform and support colorectal cancer patients alongside all relevant
stakeholders. Our target participants for CCPC 2013 will include over 300 delegates - patients, carers,
clinicians, EuropaColon’s affiliate and associate partners, National Health Authorities, politicians, the
media and representatives from the European Action Against Cancer Partnership. In line with the
EuropaColon Code of Conduct, registration will be free.
The title of this year’s Conference is ‘your life, your responsibility’ with the aim being to empower
all stakeholders to take responsibility for their health and ensure compliance to their individual
prescribed treatment pathway whilst being fully appraised of their rights within this process.
