VOICE: Science for Patient Advocates

VOICE logo

ICPV is working with Barts Cancer Institute to pilot a course in London for cancer patient advocates from anywhere in the UK, called VOICE (Vision Of Information, Confidence and Engagement) Science for patient advocates.  This is the first time a course like this has been offered in the UK.  
This course aims to give participants:
1. An introduction to basic cancer biology
This will include sessions on what cancer is, how it is caused, how it develops and how it is detected and treated.  Course participants will spend time in the research laboratories to help them to build their understanding.
2.An introduction to research terminology and clinical trial design
This will include sessions on how clinical trials are designed and run and how trial data are analysed

So that we can fund this course and enable us to fund future courses (we plan to run the course annually), we need money! Please click on the Events button to see a great way that you can help us raise funds.
