Embracing our ignorance is the gateway to transcend our arrogant use of evidence. This is when eminence emerges. Eminence is the quality people possess, acquired after years of engagement with a field of study. Yet, eminence is not the sole domain of science. It also resides in patients, who take decisions that fit their lives. The Annual Congress recognizes and unlocks eminence in us all, in order to accelerate before the next coffin arrives.
Our congresses show how equal participation from stakeholders yield greater results for patients and society. Examples at our website via this link. This leads towards an inspiring program with examples from other domains in order to achieve renewal in health care. The conference is a mixture of keynotes and working sessions on the roadmap. Participants come from various countries and continents. We learn from each other by the motto: ‘I may not help you but we might’.
We’ve now finalized our program. Recently from the Netherlands, member of the Dutch Parliament, Leonie Sazias joined as a speaker. The social aspects of cancer will be highlighted by her. Ronald Plasterk will present his latest work on ‘Vaccines on the shelf’. A new approach in the treatment of cancer. Laura van ‘t Veer will tell us about her I-Spy concept of doing trials; effective, fast and patient focused! And what to think of Robert A. Weinberg? Bob will treat us with an outstanding talk. The topic? You know it when you hear it. He has surprised us twice already with a complete other talk than expected.
