The BeONCOsup project seeks to develop the ‘Belgian Handbook for (Hemato-)Oncological Supportive Care’, which aims on optimising the provision of supportive care for cancer patients and their relatives as well as for professionals in finding recourses to refer patients to appropriate support 

As this event is a crucial part of the project, we look forward to your participation, where we can collectively contribute to the advancement of supportive cancer care in Belgium.

This project is a collaborative effort from Sciensano and financed by the RIZIV-INAMI.
