Project: I intend to carry out a population-based cost analysis of colorectal cancer (CRC) across the European Union and Ireland, Norway and Switzerland. A previous study (Luengo-Fernandez et al., 2013) estimated the cost of all cancers in the EU to cost €126 billion, but only 40% of these costs are attributable to healthcare, over 34% is due to lost productivity because of premature death. A high-resolution analysis of CRC activity and costs in Europe would provide policy makers with an increased comprehension of the needs of European citizens impacted by CRC.
