Starting a Gynaecological Cancer Advocacy Patient Group
This new series of ENGAGe factsheets is a practical guide for anyone who wants to start a new gynaecological patient advocacy group. The toolkit begins by explaining how to establish the key facts and challenges in your country and hold your first meeting, and then shows you how you build firm foundations to grow and sustain your group.
Starting a new patient group is exciting and fulfilling but, like any pioneering work, the road ahead will not always be straightforward. But remember, the gynaecological cancer advocacy groups that are now large and successful organisations began just like you and your supporters: a few people inspired by the common vision of improving the lives of women with gynaecological cancer and their families.
