The Survey on The Unmet Needs of Patients

Living with Metastatic Colorectal Cancer (mCRC)

Dear Friend

We would like you to contribute to an important survey that will help us understand how patients cope with a diagnosis of metastatic colorectal cancer. This invitation is for you specifically and your answers will help us support you and other patients more effectively in the future.

Healthcare in Europe is different in every country. You might live in a country where your whole healthcare team supports you from diagnosis and you might have access to the latest treatments and medicines for your cancer as well as support from the different services. Even so, your experience is important to us because regretfully in some countries patients are not so fortunate.

We need your answers and we will use your anonymous replies to make recommendations for change. There are no wrong answers - it is all about your experience and that is what we need to know. Without this information health ministries will not listen to our arguments.

This is the first time a survey like this has been commissioned in Europe for colorectal cancer. 

Up until now, we have recruited more than 850 patients across Europe. Some of the results from the completed surveys have been published at 3 major European conferences in 2018 (see the results below). In order to finish with the recruitment we need additional 150 patients to complete the survey. Please help us!
