Starting a Gynaecological Cancer Advocacy Patient Group

setting_up_group_factsheet.jpg

Patient groups can support people throughout their cancer journey by increasing their knowledge and coping skills. At the same time, patient groups can act as advocates for patients in discussions with health professionals, researchers, the healthcare system, and local and national government. There may already be general cancer advocacy groups in your country, but these groups frequently include participants diagnosed with many different types of cancer.

 

Women with gynaecological cancers have specific advocacy and support needs and may be reluctant to share their experiences as members of general cancer groups, especially in countries where these cancers still evoke shame, embarrassment or stigma.

ENGAGe launched a new gynaecological cancer patient group capacity building initiative in collaboration with its corporate champions partners. This initiative resulted from recommendation of the first ESGO patient seminar in 2011.
