The European Code of Cancer Practice
Is a new tool for empowering citizens and cancer patients with ten key overarching rights, signposting what cancer patients should expect from their health system.
The European Code of Cancer Practice (The Code), translated in several languages, is a citizen and patient-centred manifesto of the core requirements for good clinical cancer practice, in order to improve outcomes for all of Europe’s cancer patients. It has been co-produced by a team of cancer patients, patient advocates and cancer professionals. It has its origins in the European Cancer Patient Bill of Rights, which was launched in the European Parliament on World Cancer Day 2014 and won the prestigious 2018 European Health Award.
