ENSP-ECPC Webinar: Tobacco Treatment Delivery in cancer patients in Europe
Date: 19 October 2020
Time: 13:00 to 14:00 CET
We are inviting you to attend our online webinar on Tobacco Treatment Delivery in cancer patients in Europe which will take place on Monday, 19th October 2020 from 13:00 to 14:00 CET.
In collaboration with the European Network for Smoking and Tobacco Prevention, this symposium aims at addressing the importance of smoking cessation during or after cancer treatment, highlighting the feasibility, availability, cost-effectiveness and efficacy in cancer treatment success and cancer recovery.
Great progress has been recorded in cancer care during the past years. Although, it is well established that approximately 30% of cancer deaths are directly caused by smoking and there are evidence-based interventions including behavioural therapy available which can double or triple the rates of successful quitting, they are often neglected and are not incorporated in cancer treatment and recovery.
Continuing smoking after diagnosis affects the treatment outcomes, increases the mortality rates after treatment and the recurrence of cancer while increases the risk of a new cancer. On the other hand, quitting smoking after the cancer diagnosis can improve the treatment outcomes, prolong survival, and reduce the risk for new cancers.
