In the context of COVID-19, life as we all knew before completely changed, therefore all activities had to adapt to the new situation. The new virtual panel series started on the 22nd of October with a session dedicated to The impact of COVID-19 on cancer treatment and screening. Moderated by Sara Badreh, Senior Manager Health and Research Projects at the European Cancer Patient Coalition, the webinar tackled topics such as quantifying the impact of COVID-19 on cancer screening, tests, and treatment, but also creating a safe environment for cancer patients as we emerge from lock-down. Moreover, the panelists discussed ways to develop a strategy to increase hospital testing capacity, increase turn-around times, and prioritise effectively and lessons learned for future pandemics.
