The Patient Voice in Cancer Research
Cancer survivors and their families joined researchers and health care professionals in round table discussions at the UCD Conway Institute (13th April) to talk about how to put patients at the heart of the cancer research agenda.
The event was organised by UCD Medicine Research, UCD Conway Institute, Systems Biology Ireland & BREAST-PREDICT in conjunction with Relay for Life UCD & the Irish Cancer Society.
ICORG representatives participated in the very rich discussions. ICORG’s CEO Eibhlin Mulroe said that while participants commented that there was a lot of information available to patients, the challenge was to get the right information to them at the right time and when they needed it most.
Pictured are some of the event’s facilitators: (back row l to r) Elaine Kelly (Patient Advocate), Ann Cody (Health Research Board), Patrick Slevin (INSIGHT), Sharon O'Toole (St James Hospital), (front row l to r) Claire O'Connell (freelance journalist), Marie-Ennis O'Connor (Patient Advocate) and Rob O'Connor (Irish Cancer Society).
