Importance of patient groups

Professor Ruben Belfort Neto, MD, PhD, talks about the importance of patient groups when dealing with uveal melanoma

Importance of patient groups

 

Patient organisations help people by providing information about living with their conditions, raise awareness about screening and prevention, and offer a number of support tools. They provide a forum for people to meet each other, share experiences and provide on-going support for patients, their relatives and friends. 

In this video, Professor Ruben Belfort Neto shares his opinion on how these groups are crucial to the overall management of a patient with uveal melanoma.
