Patient advocacy: an essential role
Patient advocacy, by individuals and organizations, serves an essential role, giving a voice to those who are most affected by a disease. Here, Catherine Bouvier, RGN, Director of Patient Support at the neuroendocrine tumor (NET) Patient Foundation, Leamington Spa, UK, passionately discusses the importance of patient advocacy and the significance of medical establishments, such as the British Thoracic Oncology Group (BTOG), including the patient voice. She also discusses how the NET Patient Foundation encourages patients to be part of discussions with healthcare professionals. This video was recorded at the BTOG Annual Conference 2018, held in Dublin, Ireland.
