The event’s focal point was the presentation of the White Paper’s policy recommendations aimed at harnessing legislative opportunities and providing improved support to patients and carers impacted by bladder cancer in Europe.
  • The launch of our White Paper which aims to inform the policymakers in Brussels and the Member State capitals to consider an EU agenda with more ambitious policy actions targeting neglected cancers, such as bladder cancer, and close the cancer care gap by supporting awareness and education and ensuring access to high-quality diagnostic tools, care and treatment.
  • Urology Week 2023 – which is a European initiative run by the European Association of Urology (EAU) which took place from 24-30 September 2023 and aimed to raise awareness about incontinence challenges and break the taboo around talking about incontinence.
  • Global Insights into Bladder Cancer Care – the first episode of video series organised by Urotoday.com and the World Bladder Cancer Patient Coalition, Dr Ashish Kamat joined Dr Pat Hensley and WBCPC President, Dr Lydia Makaroff to discuss insights into patient experiences and treatment access.
