Patient Groups: Spread the News

Patient groups are uniquely placed to challenge fears and misperceptions that hamper prevention and contribute to late diagnoses, poor treatment and the social isolation of patients. Acting locally but using the Internet they are now campaigning globally. A recent article in "Cancerworld" also features the activities of The Max Foundation. See the article here.

New interactive forum for clinicians discussing difficult CML cases

To share and enhance best practice management of CML the iCMLf has opened a discussion forum where experts and interested clinicians can discuss difficult, or interesting CML patient cases. Clinicians submit a brief history of the patient and the case for discussion (no more than 200 words) to the iCMLf web-site coordinator, Jan Geissler. Each case accepted will be published in the discussion forum with a brief response. Further comments, questions and discussion are invited.
