For screening, the purpose is to create guidance based on the best available evidence and in accordance with current & new European quality assurance guidelines for cancer screening. It is becoming clear that in many areas of medicine, integration of services is essential in order to achieve optimal results using the available resources rationally. We will focus on the latter approach: how to move from the concept of a Comprehensive Cancer Center to a Comprehensive Cancer Care Network. A new challenge for health care policy is the shift from “how long” people live after diagnosis to “how well” people live from diagnosis onward; a European organizational framework will be developed to include a detailed list of recommendations to be tackled to address survivorship, rehabilitation & palliative care. In community-level care, improved community cancer care of populations through early cancer detection & provision of cancer pathways in primary care will be sought. These activities will be supplemented by discussion of MS on key cancer control topics in a platform for MS cooperation.
