On April 12, 2016, Denise Bryant-Lukosius attended the Juravinski Cancer Centre Patient Family Advisory Committee meeting to present and discuss the preliminary results of the Self-Management Support and Patient Activation: Healthcare Provider Perspectives study.

This meeting provided the valuable opportunity to engage with patients and their family members and elicit valuable feedback and recommendations from their perspective. Specifically, discussion centred on:

i. What the study results meant to patients and their families;

ii. How the results fit with their cancer care experiences;

iii. The importance of patient activation and self-management support for patients

iv. How patients and their families should be involved in improving self-management support provided at the Juravinski Cancer Centre
