Promoting Health Literacy

The Cancer Prevention and Treatment Fund reports one in four patients do not even understand the goal of their chemotherapy.  Ones who do are usually vague about the details.

To some extent, that is OK.  We have doctors and nurses for a reason and we should rely on their expertise.  But patients should know as much as possible, if they so desire.   As the medical world moves from informed consent for patients to informed decision-making it is important that people have access to accurate information. That is why we are here.
