SAKK Patient Advisory Board

SAKK partnership with patients, patient representatives and patient organizations

Patient orientation is one of the SAKK's core values. We attach great importance to learning about the experience of patients and their families as a way of achieving improved long-term cancer treatments. Our patient advisory board supports the SAKK by advising it on research projects, communications or strategic affairs. Would you like to be involved?
