Vanessa Beattie speaks to ecancer about the first global lung cancer coalition GLCC patient experience survey. This study investigates lung cancer patient experience in Europe.
Initially, Vanessa talks about the background of the GLCC study. She notes that little comparative European or global data exists on lung cancer patient experience.
The Global Lung Cancer Coalition (GLCC) is a partnership of 40 patient organisations across 29 nations that wanted to understand the experiences of lung cancer patients, identifying common themes and differences between countries.
The GLCC, therefore, used its member networks to run a multi-national online survey of patients.
Vanessa then discusses the common problems that lung cancer patients face throughout their diagnosis and treatment. She talks about why these problems exist and what is the solution for it.
