Bridging the Gap between Oncology Patients and Professionals

A Note from the CKN Team

Please join us in welcoming our new Social Media Editor, Dr. Mark Lewis

“The Internet is full of information, but not all medical content is created equal. Some citations are outdated, others were never reliable or legitimately grounded in evidence to begin with. Furthermore, much of the most exciting, cutting-edge research is presented via language and statistics that can seem impenetrable. Such jargon presents a significant obstacle to a self-advocating patient or their caregiver, who seeks to ensure they are receiving the best treatment for their cancer. As such, I seek to clarify meaningful findings in the ever-advancing field of oncology in a manner that is more comprehensible and which encourages respectful dialogue between cancer researchers and the patient population they ultimately serve.”
