Treatment Optimisation picture n1

The EORTC and the BioMed Alliance, together with key members of the European Parliament, will organise a webinar bringing together important health stakeholders to share fresh and diverse perspectives on what can be implemented in the current EU policy programmes to advance Treatment Optimization as part of health systems.

The discussion is timely needed considering the current health challenges and the preparation of the ambitious EU Health Union programme and its policy and legislative measures such as the Pharmaceutical Strategy, the upcoming Horizon Europe, the EU4Health programme, and Europe's Beating Cancer Plan.

Recent health threats such as COVID-19 demonstrated the urgent need to have a healthcare system that places the patient at the centre and has the ultimate goal to solve clinical issues. The drug-driven approach tends to dominate treatment development in oncology and a similar tendency is seen in other medical specialities. Thus, important aspects relating to the use of novel therapies in real-world settings are neglected throughout the process such as: optimal dose, duration, sequence, combination, and quality of life. New drugs reaching the market is not an end, but a start. Treatment optimisation plays an important role in improving the way treatments are utilised in real-world conditions through the conduct of studies. These studies can provide an answer to one or multiple of the above-mentioned clinical research questions.
