ESMO Workshop: Science for Advocates
October 13, 2017 - October 15, 2017
Patient and patient advocates are increasingly involved in decision-making in healthcare and the setting of research agenda. Knowing how to access scientific literature, correctly analyse and interpret data, hold a scientific argument and to effectively and correctly communicate scientific content have therefore become essential advocacy skills.
‘Science for advocates’ will be a 2-day interactive workshop (Friday afternoon till Sunday lunch-time) with a combination of lectures, independent and group work. To ensure effective communication, the workshop size will be limited to 35-40 European Cancer patient advocates. Participation is upon application only.
