FROM LIVED EXPERIENCE TO INSPIRED ACTION
The CANDU team are committed to ensuring the lived experience of cancer is represented on all decision making forums and strategic boards. We are delighted to represented cancer lived experience at the Scottish Government on the Cancer CPPG, the Macmillan ICJ in Dundee, NHS Tayside Cancer Overview Group and the University of Dundee Nursing & Midwifery School Board.
Throughout the year CANDU hosts and organises a number of activities which bring together others affected by cancer to share experiences, build supportive relationships and understand the needs, wants and wishes of local people.
In November 2019 our first patient & professional conference welcomed over 60 people to an event which included contributions from NHS Tayside, the Roxburgh House Co-Design team, Open Change, Maggie's and Uppertunity. A report on the outcomes of this event will be available to download in the Spring.
