European Digestive Cancer Days 2017 – Prevention and Screening

The international conference European Digestive Cancer Days 2017, which is focused on the prevention of digestive cancers, will be held in Prague, Czech Republic, on 26–27 September 2017.

The international conference European Digestive Cancer Days 2017 (EDCD) is picking up the threads of the annual European Colorectal Cancer Days (ECCD) conference and extending its focus. As one of its objectives, the ECCD conference was promoting standardised colorectal cancer screening according to international best practices, which was particularly important for the Czech Republic: the Czech National Colorectal Cancer Screening Programme – in its originally implemented form – did not include personal invitations. Among others, the ECCD conference has significantly contributed to the introduction of population-based cancer screening programmes in the Czech Republic, involving the invitation of eligible individuals, in 2014. The new EDCD conference extends its focus on all gastrointestinal cancers and related cancer control activities, such as prevention, early detection, treatment and long-term care.

There is no registration fee but registration is required.
