The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation

Involvement in lung cancer

We are looking for people to become a member of the Cochrane Lung Cancer Review Group (see lungcancer.cochrane.org/ ) which is dedicated to creating high quality reviews of the evidence on the management of patients with lung cancer and mesothelioma, and to provide a patient/ consumer perspective.

We would like you to have knowledge or experience of lung cancer, an understanding of clinical terminology, some basic understanding of research methods and experience of reading or writing information materials.

This would involve 2 -3 hours per month, with a variety of tasks.

All meetings would be virtual through phone calls or internet but almost all business is carried out by email.

The purpose would be to provide a patient/ user perspective on all aspects of the work, including choice of topics for reviews, but the main work would consist of reading draft reviews before publication to ensure that the section aimed at providing a readable summary for patients and public is clear and understandable.

If you are interested in finding out more, use the mail icon on the green tool bar above to let me know.

best wishes
