Patient Organisations in the Assessment of Cancer Treatments

The European Cancer Patient Coalition is developing an online educational module which aims to equip our members with knowledge to participate in the Health Technology Assessment (HTA) of cancer treatments.

The module will cover cancer treatments and how they are examined in these assessments, why cancer treatments might be reimbursed in some countries but not in others, and how cancer patient organisations can get involved in the HTA.

People living with cancer and their carers best understand the need for new therapies and their impact on quality of life. Their unique knowledge, perspectives and experiences are crucial in determining the value of new treatments in the Health Technology Assessment.
