Improving treatment for head and neck cancer: new video series

12 Aug 2020
Targeting Cancer ambassador, Julie McCrossin, has produced a series of videos which explore improving the care of people with head and neck cancer

A unique series of 14 videos on innovations in the treatment of head and neck cancer patients has been launched to mark World Head and Neck Cancer Day on 27 July 2020.

Each video focuses on the clinical practice of multidisciplinary team members and researchers to improve survival and quality of life for people with head and neck cancer. The videos  give the latest evidence-based information to patients, family members and clinicians through interviews with people on the frontline of healthcare.

The project was lead by Targeting Cancer ambassador, Julie McCrossin. “The project is unique in its scale and content.” said Julie. “But most significantly, it is unique in the editorial independence given to a head and neck cancer patient to interview clinical experts and share the stories and questions of fellow patients.”

Videos focused on radiation therapy look at technology innovations in radiation therapy and managing mask anxiety.

You can view the full video series on the Head and Neck Cancer Forum website.
