People with cancer have a higher than normal risk of developing a blood clot - a condition known as cancer-associated thrombosis (CAT). Yet it remains under-reported, seldom discussed and often misdiagnosed.
The European Cancer Patient Coalition patient survey is gathering insights from patients, to help understand how much cancer patients know about thrombosis, and when and where they find this information.
Findings will inform discussions with policymakers and other stakeholders, in order to improve their understanding of cancer patients’ awareness of thrombosis, so that its risks and symptoms can be dealt with better.
The survey is being administered by the European Cancer Patient Coalition (www.ecpc.org), the largest umbrella cancer patient organization in Europe, representing over 400 cancer patients organisations in Europe and beyond. Please share your thoughts and experiences.
