Why it matters
In line with ECPC’s long-term efforts to empower cancer survivors in Europe, the smartCARE project under the EU4Health Programme 2021-2027 is a flagship initiative of the EU’s Beating Cancer Plan. The project aims to improve the health and wellbeing of cancer survivors by developing a cancer survivor smart card in the form of a mobile app.
What ECPC does
In its role of consultative partner, ECPC provides feedback and expertise to ensure that the needs of cancer survivors and their carers are considered in the development of the cancer Survivor Smart Card mobile app. The participation of ECPC ensures that the concept of this mobile application in the long-term conveys a good understanding in respect to the needs and challenges of cancer survivors, in particular those with co-morbidities or experiencing complications from their cancer treatment.
