The Survey on the Unmet Needs of Patients Living with Oesophageal or Gastric Cancer
With your help we can all make a difference for gastric/oesophageal cancer patients.
In 2015 EuropaColon, now Digestive Cancers Europe began actively to work more with other digestive cancers. We began first in pancreatic cancer and already support many activities taking place across Europe. Our second step was to look at oesophageal and gastric cancers. Both cause considerable difficulties to citizens across Europe as more and more people are diagnosed with either of these cancers.
But as we did our research we found very little information and even less support for patients and carers in Europe. To help us understand how we can better serve anyone diagnosed with these cancers, we have asked patients to help us by way of completing our survey.
The survey is now closed and we would like to thank all those who took part – your help in making a difference to the lives of other patients in the future cannot be underestimated.
We are now collating the results and will be publishing them soon. Once published, we will disseminate them and use them in our work for explaining to Policy Makers, Health Ministries and the media the issues faced by people living with one of these cancers.
