Living with and beyond cancer: a patient’s quality of life is just as important as survival

The views of patients with cancer, and their survivorship, is becoming increasingly important to cancer research. This podcast not only highlights the importance of patient involvement in setting the research agenda, but also reveals the challenges, next-steps, and progress being made in the development of treatments and knowledge regarding all aspects of cancer. In this podcast, our featured experts give us an overview of the challenges surrounding cancer survivorship and how they can be addressed going forward.
