Improving patients’ experience of their treatment and care is an important issue for the GLCC and its members. There is, however, little data comparing patient experience between countries.
In 2020 we therefore set out to gain insights into patient experience, working with our network of patient advocacy groups to share a multi-national online survey asking lung cancer patients around the world about their experience of treatment and care.
This uncovered a wealth of information and insight and was presented at the World Congress on Lung Cancer.
