This was our first webinar of the Stakeholder Network that has evolved out of the Thematic Network of the same name. The objective of this event is to assess what can be done to identify and implement best practices in CRC screening in Europe in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
During the webinar we will explore:
- How to make screening more robust and clinically effective when challenged by acute crisis such as the COVID pandemic
- Which stakeholders to involve and how to collaborate for maximum impact and efficiency
- How to ensure the development of more resilient and effective national screening programmes
- How to collaborate at EU level to share best practices and harmonise approaches.
