NCCN has a large active presence in Europe, and translations of NCCN Guidelines® in French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, and Spanish are available on the International Adaptations & Translations page.
NCCN has exhibited at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Annual Congress and presented on the “Resource-Stratification of NCCN Head and Neck Cancers Guideline”. The organization has also hosted several global events in Europe, including an NCCN Global Patient Advocacy Engagement Roundtable in Spain and NCCN Global Academy for Excellence & Leadership in Oncology™ and the Global Corporate Council meetings in Germany and Spain.
NCCN leadership attended the first International Congress of Patient Empowerment in Poland and Robert W. Carlson, MD, Chief Executive Officer, NCCN, met with the Polish oncology community leadership, advocacy organizations, Ministry of Health, and the U.S. Embassy staff in Warsaw to discuss NCCN’s global role in health care.
NCCN has an ongoing collaboration with La Fundación para la Excelencia y la Calidad Oncológica (ECO) to adapt NCCN Guidelines for Spain.
ECO is a leading association in Spain, formed by medical oncologists, with the commitment of improving quality care for cancer patients, promoting excellence in clinical assistance, investigation, and training.
“The collaboration with ECO will significantly impact patient care and remedy an unmet need for oncologists and other clinicians in Spain and other Spanish-speaking regions,” said Robert W. Carlson, MD, Chief Executive Officer, NCCN.
“ECO and NCCN share many principles and values, and this agreement will help to improve quality care for Spanish cancer patients through the translation and regional adaptation of clinical guidelines,” said Carlos Camps, MD, President, ECO Foundation.
