    How to Get Involved in Research as a Survivor

     

    Friday, February 10 at 12:00 pm EST

     

    The George Washington University (GW) Cancer Center invites you to join us for an upcoming Ask the Expert on How to Get Involved in Research as a Survivor. Survivors' cancer experiences give them unique expertise that is crucial to strengthening research and improving patient-centered care. Survivors can improve patient-centered research by sharing their insights in a number of capacities, for example, by reviewing research proposals, advocating for research funding and participating on the research team. Yet, understanding the research process and learning how to get involved can be daunting. Join us for a lively discussion with an exciting panel of survivor/research contributors to hear about their experiences getting involved in research and learn how you can get involved, too!

     

    Learning Objectives:

    • Learn the valuable role patients and advocates can play in influencing research from the initial development of the research question to translation into clinical practice
    • Learn the importance of being an informed consumer of medical care and developing "critical health literacy"
    • Discuss steps that cancer survivors can follow to identify research advocacy opportunities
    • Describe the value of incorporating the patient voice into the research process
