On 15 April, the Beating Cancer Committee explored how the EU could further promote and facilitate cooperation and the sharing of knowledge, expertise and data on cancer research and care, for instance through the European Reference Networks and cancer registries, but also by improving the cross-border healthcare directive.

"Sharing is caring" was the motto of the hearing. However, as the Chair underlined, good intentions are not enough. "It is our job to ensure access to quality healthcare for all cancer patients" he said.
During the public hearing with 8 leading experts, MEPs will also discuss the development of common training programmes for health professionals in the field of cancer, as well as clear and validated communication and information to citizens.
