At Melanoma UK, we believe it is vital to proactively use evidence in our advocacy work.
An increasing proportion of patients are highly sophisticated in their research and understanding of evidence, and we are matching this movement. Examples include participation in health technology appraisal meetings (NICE and SMC), presenting clinically validated information on our website, authoring publications, engaging with our own panel of medical experts, and supporting patient-centric initiatives.
Ultimately, all these initiatives are designed to benefit and support patients, which has been Melanoma UK's mission since its foundation.
At Melanoma UK it is our challenge and desire to give patients and their families much needed support during the very difficult times faced upon diagnosis.
Doctors collect statistical information about the different types of cancer and prognosis. Prognosis is the likely outcome of your disease and treatment. In other words, your chances of getting better and how long you are likely to live.
