This is an exciting new project looking at the issues surrounding communication and dissemination of cancer information across Europe.
The project is divided in to six areas, involving the whole cancer community from scientist to patient.
One thing that comes over very strongly is that this is an official project that is going to involve us PATIENTS.
The organisers have kindly given permission for me to post extracts, so that readers can get a taste of what is happening in the Eurocommunity. As the project develops, I will be posting extracts, or for the full flavour go to their website – I can promise you they have taken on board our distaste of NHS-speak, and it is written in English English!
There are some very interesting video discussions, and it is shaming how well Danes, Dutch etc. speak our language – a lesson to some of our medics who try to blind us with NHS-speak!
