Improving Cancer Services Through Patient Involvement
Radcliffe Medical Press, 2004 - Medical - 215 pages
This book provides a clear approach to establishing a user involvement system in a healthcare organisation and its potential impact on cancer services. Using a tool kit style approach, drawing on examples of successful past projects and case studies to provide evidence of good practice, it describes how to plan and implement different stages of user involvement, enabling organisations to draw on user experience and expertise to evaluate, develop and improve the quality of service that they provide. Members of regional cancer networks, multidisciplinary cancer care teams, and all those involved in the NHS cancer services will find this toolkit interesting reading.
