2017 Annual Conference
Warsaw, Poland 6th, 7th & 8th April 2017
Over 50 kidney cancer advocates from 28 countries met in Warsaw, Poland for our 7th international conference for organisations representing patients with kidney cancer.
The first ever Global Kidney Cancer Awareness Day – Thursday 22nd June 2017 – was officially launched following the keynote address on the ‘Global Burden of Kidney Cancer’ delivered by Prof. Dr. Hendrik van Poppel of Belgium.
During our conference we heard from many other well respected clinicians and experts covering important topics including clinical trials, supportive care, radiotherapy, risk factors and real world evidence.
Throughout the three-day meeting patient group leaders from around the world also heard about latest developments in kidney cancer care, discussed active patient involvement and shared experiences with national healthcare policies.
IKCC past conferences: Our previous six conferences have seen patient advocacy group leaders and healthcare professionals from over 25 countries spanning 6 continents, come together to exchange ideas, hear the latest developments in the treatment of kidney cancer and share current ways to support kidney cancer patients wherever they live. Delegates agreed that working together and exchanging ideas was the most effective way to improve support for kidney cancer patients in their respective countries.
