Course dedicated to Patients and Caregivers interested in Cancer Clinical Research
A two-day course for cancer patient advocates
Resulting from EORTC-ECPC partnership, this course is designed specifically for European patients and/or patient representatives. The goal of this course is to provide cancer patient advocates with a stimulating and challenging two-day training experience leading to a much greater understanding of the whole clinical trials process. Provided the format (two half days), this course shall be considered as an intensive introduction to the subject. The course programme was reviewed by the Programme Committee with majority of patient representatives from different organisations. Participation in this course will enable cancer patient advocates to learn about cancer biology; personalized cancer treatment and care; the organisation of clinical research; and very importantly, how patient groups can become more involved in the design and implementation of clinical trials. Several interactive sessions will enable participants to debate on selected topics with experts from different fields, including researchers, but also more experienced patient advocates.
Who should attend? Patient Group Leaders with some experience in cancer related patient advocacy/patient support/patient information provision and a high interest in understanding clinical research in cancer. Participants should have good English language skills as the course will be conducted only in English.
