In April 2019 took place the Pancreatic Cancer Advocacy Workshop (PACAW) in Rome. Members of the Platform were invited to join the Heads of the “Awareness and Diagnosis” and “National Support” workstream, Ali Stunt and Antonella Cardone, to learn the know-how of designed advocacy strategies in their countries. To this occasion, Members were offered to create a strategy to compete for the Pancreatic Cancer Advocacy Workshop award. Two very successful proposals were submitted by our Scottish and Polish members, Pancreatic Cancer Scotland and EuropaColon Poland. EuropaColon Poland finally won the award, and the reward, a one-year support from the PCE Secretariat to the implementation of their national activities, based on mental health in cancer patients and adopting a psycho-oncological approach to cancer care. Congratulations to both groups for their submission, thank you to all the members who participated to the Workshop and see you next year for a third edition of the PACAW!
