The forum will be held on Tuesday, December 6th 2016 at the Marriott Grosvenor Square, London, from 8:00am to 5:40pm.
Mary-Jane Elliott, Managing Partner at Consilium Strategic Communications, the Official PR Agency for The Economist Events' War on Cancer forum, commented: "Healthcare systems around the world are facing a range of challenges, many of which have the potential to directly impact how cancer will be treated in the future. This forum will bring together leading oncologists and other key stakeholders to discuss how we can ensure health systems remain sustainable in order to deliver promising new technologies and treatments in the fight against cancer. Consilium is very proud to support the event again for this, its second year. We are looking forward to the forum, the panels and the lively discussions it will provoke."
Innovative approaches to cancer treatment, prevention and care are emerging at an unprecedented rate. However, the policies and systems in place to deliver these advancements to people are lagging behind. Currently in the UK to get a new medicine from the research lab to patients it takes an average of 10 years and £1 billion. Whether we are fighting cancer with novel therapies or adopting the latest preventative guidance, we must ensure that our systems are up to the task of delivering progress. How do we scale the knowledge and capability in oncology that we already have and prepare for what's coming?
