Dr Vikki Entwistle – University of Dundee, UK

Dr Vikki Entwistle talks to ecancer about getting patients involved in cancer care at the European Oncology Nursing Society annual meeting in Geneva, April 2012.


A big question that arises while involving patients in the decision making process is whether or not the patient wants to be involved. Sometimes patients worry that they should not because they are not qualified.


Dr Entwistle explains the importance of their active involvement is not to have them deciding treatment options, but to evaluate the risks and benefits of their choices in terms of what they want.
