Policy Roundtable: Towards earlier detection of skin cancer in Europe

Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan, with its major focus on prevention, is an important opportunity to make advances in primary and secondary prevention of skin cancer.

Secondary skin cancer prevention – or screening – can be achieved through a simple and quick skin examination and results in improved survival and quality of life through earlier identification and consequently earlier treatment.

In the context of the upcoming revision of the EU Council Recommendation on cancer screening, EADV convened the present Policy Roundtable to stimulate debate between members of the European health community around:

  • The optimal approach for skin cancer screening in Europe
  • Lessons in skin cancer screening from national settings
  • Further research efforts needed in skin cancer screening
