Task Force 4 seeks to promote educational efforts of healthcare professional and information on rare cancers, and it is committed to:
- To expand and improve the educational offer for patients and healthcare professionals on rare cancers.
- To disseminate information about RCE’s initiatives and its mission.
- To raise awareness about rare cancers hurdles and engage the International rare cancers community to take actions.
In light of the conclusion of the Joint Action on Rare Cancers (JARC), members of Task Force 4 will build upon the JARC’s deliverables relevant to the goals it has set itself in order to keep pursuing the RCE mission. They will be looking to implement the following recommendations of the Rare Cancer Agenda 2030:
- Recommendation 4: Medical education should exploit and serve healthcare networking by proper integration of the university system and all educational players, being instrumental to dedicated career mechanisms and opportunities.
- Recommendation 6: Patient-physician shared clinical decision-making should be especially valued being crucial to the appropriate approach to the high degree of uncertainty posed by rare cancers
