Patient Engagement

Posted by Margaret on June 2, 2017 in
Including the patient voice in healthcare discussions and research initiatives is gradually becoming the standard of care, especially in the oncology world.  This is something we think is long overdue and we’d like to get involved.

We are seeking to build a connection between the global patient community and the Canadian research community within the context of our peer-reviewed journal Current Oncology.  We are exploring ways to invite physicians/oncologists who are also cancer patients, to join a proposed “Current Oncology Patient Review Board”.  These physician-patients would be selected to review research papers related to their cancer type.  The papers would still be subject to our standard peer-review process and the patient-review would be optional.
