ELF - Patient organisation interview: Lung Cancer Europe

In February the European Lung Foundation interviewed the chair of Lung Cancer Europe (LuCE) Mogens Ekelund (right), who offered an introduction to LuCE and its activities, as well as providing some insight into LuCE’s involvement in ELF’s lung cancer patient priorities project.

LuCE is the voice of lung cancer patients, their families and survivors at a European level, and provides a European platform for the lung cancer patient advocacy groups that already exist, as well as supporting the establishment of new national groups where such groups do not exist. LuCE aims to raise awareness about inequalities in accessing lung cancer treatment and care in Europe, and advocates European polices that will lead to improvements in lung cancer prevention, early detection, treatment and care.
