Summary/transcript

We talked to Dr Bettina Ryll of Melanoma Patient Network Europe about changes in melanoma treatment and how the added complexity of new treatments has changed how patients need to be informed.

Dr Ryll believes that educating and communicating these changes in therapy to patients is a challenge. She also points out that patients who are educated and have good knowledge of their disease and treatment, fare better than patients who do not have this knowledge.

Therefore, the Melanoma Patient Network Europe has a heavy focus on education for patients in order to improve outcome. Dr Ryll also highlights the importance of working together with oncologists to achieve this.
