The Patient Advisory Committee aids patients in raising their questions and expressing their desires related to NCT. The committee has six spokespersons: experienced active participants from oncologic self-help groups and patients at NCT.
NCT Patient Advisory Committee
Assistance for questions and suggestions
The spokespersons as neutral and independent partners are available to help everyone quickly forward their concerns to the appropriate place. The committee regularly discusses suggestions for improvements and ideas with the NCT management and develops corresponding measures, such as improving communication between patients and physicians or within patient care. In addition, the Patient Advisory Council is available to scientists and physicians at the NCT Heidelberg for the planning of clinical research projects.
The Heidelberg Self-help Office coordinates and manages the Patient Advisory Committee.
