ENGAGe brochures and factsheets

ENGAGe brochures are one of the essential tools in supporting patient pathway though gynaecological cancer

ENGAGe is pleased to share fact sheets on individual gynaecologic cancers which help educate women about the different types of gynecologic cancer.  If patient groups would like to adapt and translate from English to their own language please contact ENGAGe at engage@esgo.org.

Ovarian, uterine, cervix and other gynaecological cancers are among the most common cancers to affect women, but collectively attract less attention than they deserve from the public and policy makers.

 

Women themselves may be unaware of the sometimes symptoms or may be too embarrassed to consult a doctor, and there remains a stigma associated with these diagnoses in some quarters. This reticence needs to be overcome and a more positive message developed to improve the prevention, screening, treatment and care of gynaecological cancers so that women throughout Europe have the best chance of survival and quality of life.

Why are ENGAGe brochures so important?

ENGAGe brochures are one of the essential tools in supporting patient pathway though gynaecological cancer

Patients who are informed correctly about their disease, options of treatment and its downside are more prone to make conscious choice on their treatment. Also doctors appreciate the possibility of a dialogue with informed patients.

ENGAGe brochures constitute a powerful source of up-to-date information for patients from expert clinicians. These brochures are drafted with care by the ESGO clinicians, incorporating latest trends in cancer treatment. Every brochure is carefully read by a cancer patient or patient advocate assuring the language used and the content is fully understandable to every woman.

In 2021/2022 we have produced 8 new brochures and translated over 70 brochures to 23 different languages.

ENGAGe Chair Prof. Jalid Sehouli together with past ENGAGe Chair  Prof. Murat Gultekin have expressed their conviction on why they find brochures crucial.

Our Patient associations talk on the importance of brochure for them and their members in short videos. Please have a look at:
