The Community Liver Alliance (CLA) will hold a patient roundtable on March 30, 2023 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. EST. The discussion aims to identify the needs of liver cancer patients and their families, and the best ways to support them, while addressing disparities in liver cancer patient care.
Please use this link to register for the program and share it with your family and friends.
The CLA believes that patients can play a pivotal role in research, development, and strategies for treating patients with cancer. Furthermore, there is a need to make the lifecycle management of medicines more efficient and adapted to the evolving patient environment.
The Roundtable Discussion is an open interaction between subject matter experts and patients/caregivers on topics developed to facilitate better interconnectedness and thus improve the lives of patients with cancer, considering all types of diversity. A secondary audience is primary care providers and other patient care providers.
The CLA patient pre-survey enables us to develop the topics and speakers. A follow-up survey after the Roundtable Discussion will be used to understand the patient experience and next steps for future initiatives and engagements. Further, a summary document will be developed to share best practices, outcomes and resources.
