According to the World Health Organization (WHO) between 30% to 50% of cancers could be preventable1.
Launched in September 2022, the “Cancer Prevention Across Europe” campaign (PrEvCan) aims to help address this statistic and reduce the burden of cancer. Initiated, and led, by the European Oncology Nurses Society (EONS) we were delighted to speak with the campaign Project Lead, Lena Sharp, RN, (Regional Cancer Center Stockholm Gotland, Stockholm, Sweden) to learn more about the initiative and to help support EONS in raising awareness of PrEvCan amongst healthcare professionals (HCPs).
- Could you give us a brief overview of PrEvCan and its aims? (0.23)
- What is the role of EONS and ESMO in this campaign? (1:11)
- Could you tell us a little about the European Code of Cancer (ECAC) on which PrEvCan is based? (1:47)
- What will be the focus for the coming months? (2:36)
We continue our conversation here, addressing the importance of nurses, partnerships and funding in the campaign’s success.
