Conference 2015 Announcement
Morristown, New Jersey, USA, 16th-18th April 2015
Our Fifth International Kidney Cancer Coalition Conference for organisations representing kidney cancer patients offers representatives from patient groups around the world, the opportunity to share best practices, exchange experiences and work together to improve the lives of kidney cancer patients wherever they live.
Global Patient Charter for Kidney Cancer Care
One result directly stemming from our conference in Amsterdam in is our international patient charter for kidney cancer care. Following the conference in April 2014, we asked the 34 groups present to prioritize 10 statements according to the needs of kidney cancer patients in their own country. The results of the survey were drafted into a Patient Charter: the Amsterdam Patient Charter for Global Kidney Cancer Care.
We are thrilled that the leading urological journal European Urology (impact factor 12.5) has accepted our “Amsterdam Patient Charter for Global Kidney Cancer Care” for publication.
We are grateful for everyone’s participation in realizing this valuable document!
A press release will be provided, and we have translated the Charter into a number of different languages for distribution among affiliate members.
