Our research with patients and families clearly shows that information about Pancreatic Cancer is generally poor and that communication with sufferers and carers battling the disease leaves huge room for improvement. The patient experience of those with Pancreatic Cancer is said to be worse than for any of the other major cancers (Pancreatic Cancer UK).
We aim to change this!
Some of the money raised over the summer of 2013 will support the development and launch of a new guide for patients and carers. Its aims will be twofold:
- To improve the quality of, and access to, information about Pancreatic Cancer for those diagnosed with the disease, and their carers
- To offer advice, guidance and support to help achieve the best possible quality of life for patients and their families going through the experience
