The Forum is the annual international event on new patient rights in clinical decision-making and public health policies in the age of personalized oncology.

The Forum will voice the role of advocacy groups in defining new ways of cooperation between doctors and patients as well as in fostering the reform of national health systems and regulatory frameworks.

The Forum will be multidisciplinary and multidimensional, involving patient advocates, health professionals, policymakers, lawmakers, regulators, international organizations, governmental bodies and bio-pharmaceutical companies.
