Prof Angelo Paradiso – Giovanni Paolo II National Cancer Institute, Bari, Italy

Prof Angelo Paradiso talks to ecancer at the European Forum on Oncology in Berlin, May 2012, about the results of an educational needs survey conducted through the EurocanPlatform project.


Prof Paradiso, a specialist in post-graduate education in oncology, found large gaps in education events related to psychology, nursing and patient education through the survey that collected data from over 200 oncology education events last year.


He found lab to clinic education, but not clinic to patient and a lack of location specific events with pancreatic and brain cancers.


As an example of how to correct these gaps, Prof Paradiso talks about a meeting recently held at Giovanni Paolo II National Cancer Institute on molecular pathology.
