The MyPath project was recently represented at the EUonQoL Stakeholder Forum which was held on 12 December 2023. The event, titled “Asking the Right Questions: Assessing Quality of Life in Cancer Patients,” hosted by Norbert Couespel, Senior Coordinator for Policy Research & EU Projects at the European Cancer Organisation, aimed to enhance the quality of life for cancer patients and survivors in Europe.
The forum, attended by over 100 professionals, including healthcare experts, policymakers, researchers, and EU project representatives, highlighted the development of the EUonQoL-Kit, a tool for evaluating patients’ quality of life during various cancer stages.
A key session of the forum was on “Building Synergies with Other EU Projects” which focused on the implementation of the EUonQoL and was conducted via an interactive discussion with the audience and participating EU-projects including MyPath, smartCARE and the Cancer Inequalities Registry. The session was moderated by Professor Stein Kaasa at Oslo University Hospital and MyPath was represented by Tonje Lundeby, Senior Researcher at Oslo University Hospital. This panel discussed fostering collaboration to avoid duplication, maximize impact, and align EUonQoL with other major EU initiatives.
