What is “value” for patients in the management of prostate cancer?


Healthcare and medicine have started to become engaged in what is liable to be a long and complex discussion about the “value” of different aspects of healthcare delivery.

In this month’s CureTalk on Prostate Cancer, a group of recognized patients and patient advocates will discuss what “value” means from a patient perspective, and how patient perceptions of “value” are likely to change depending on their individual diagnosis, the course of their disease, and their experiences along the journey.

This CureTalk teleconference will be held this week at 6:00 pm Eastern (3:00 pm Pacific) on Wednesday, May 25. Click here to register.

We begin from a very simple premise: that the “value” of healthcare and medicine is not being appropriately assessed unless there is major input from those who are most affected by such assessment — the patients.
