Maggie Wilcox - Independent Cancer Patients' Voice, UK

Maggie Wilcox speaks with ecancertv at the 2016 BACR and ECMC Joint Meeting about  Independent Cancer Patients' Voice, a patient advocacy group who aim to educate and improve the outcomes of patients through involvement in research and special events.

She outlines the engagement sessions offered by ICPV, and the benefits of open dialogue between pathologists, patients and healthcare providers.

She does note the barriers to access still facing patients, such as relying on academic members to source the editorials written with and about the group.
