Multisectoral approaches for patient engagement for better cancer control

About this UICC self-guided course
This course will provide an opportunity for key experts, including patients, from the cancer community and beyond to share knowledge and experience regarding the best strategies and tools to further engage people living with cancer at all steps of the cancer control continuum.

The teaching methodology of this course combines key lectures by experts from civil society, including people living with cancer, and the private sector as well as the public sector, case studies with testimonials of patient group representatives and the simulation of a concrete patient engagement situation.

Course content is available on-demand and will take approximately 7 hours to complete. You can complete the entire course at your own pace.
The course will be particularly valuable for the following individuals:
  • Patients, survivors and caregivers willing to engage personally in representing the patient / caregiver‘s perspective
  • Cancer societies and NGOs managing patient support groups as part of their mission
  • Stakeholders interested in further engaging patients at all stages of the cancer continuum, such as policymakers, regulators, healthcare providers, researchers and others.
