Summit on Occupational Skin Cancer

A Multi-Stakeholder Summit on Occupational Skin Cancer will be held on Friday, 26 April, aimed at putting occupational skin cancer higher on both the European health and the European safety and health agenda. The event is co-hosted by seven organizations, namely the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV), the European Association of Dermato Oncology (EADO), the International League of Dermatological Societies (ILDS), the Association of European Cancer Leagues (ECL), the European Dermatology Forum (EDF), the International Commission on Occupational Health (ICOH) and the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).  Approximately 35 invited representatives of a range of stakeholders (patient advocacy groups, policy makers, medical organisations, trade unions/employers, WHO, ILO, EU-OSHA and payers) will be brought together. The Summit seeks to create an effective exchange platform in order to discuss more in-depth what actions are needed to ensure that non-melanoma skin cancer cases are reported to national cancer registries and treatments improved with a view to developing a "roadmap". The Summit will conclude with a Call to Action outlining specific actions needed to make workplaces safer for all outdoor workers in the EU and outside Europe.
