Launch event of the LuCE Report on “Experiences and quality of life of people impacted by lung cancer in Europe”

Lung Cancer Europe (LuCE) will held the virtual launch of the 6th LuCE Report on “Experiences and quality of life of people impacted by lung cancer in Europe” to be held 30th November, 10.00-11.30 AM CET.

This year, Lung Cancer Europe (LuCE) conducted a study focusing on the experiences and challenges of people with lung cancer and their caregivers, in their everyday life, their lifestyle and future plans in their “new normal”.

The report gives an insight into how people with lung cancer manage the symptoms and side effects of the disease and its treatments. It also describes the types of support caregivers provide, from practical needs (like driving to doctor appointments and handling health insurance issues) to providing emotional encouragement.

The report also sheds light on the caregivers’ role, the high level of subjective stress and need for emotional support. The report highlights the wide range of healthcare needs, the importance of multidisciplinary and person-centred pathways from diagnosis to treatment and survivorship.

The event will be hosted by Mr. Tomislav Sokol, Member of the European Parliament and Special Committee on Beating Cancer (BECA).

The event will also be streamed via social media platforms, so for those you feel are interested and would like to attend the event live, please redirect them to any of the links listed below:
