Patient Voice

EuropaColon believe that the patient voice is central to improving the patient experience. As experts in their own lives patients can provide insight into what it is really like to face a life changing disease and in particular colorectal cancer.

More and more we see patients becoming involved in initiatives aimed at improving health systems and we truly believe this to be the new age of patient involvement. However one of the most important roles for patients is to share their experiences and to provide hope to others facing similar challenges.

We want to hear your story
We hope that this section of our website will provide the platform and inspiration for patients/survivors to tell their own story. If you would like to contribute to this page please contact: Zorana Stokic at zorana@europacolon.com
