Patient Education: two useful resources to share with your CML patients

October 2014 - ‘Patient education is an essential supplement to good professional healthcare.’* With the on going success of TKI therapies and greater numbers of CML patients remaining on treatment, many for life, people who have an interest in self-education will continue to grow.
