Summary of work

The last decade has been an exciting time in cancer research. Our understanding of the underlying biology of cancer has evolved, and we now know it is a disease of the genome – meaning, every cancer is unique and should be treated that way. Cancer genomic testing can play a critical role in identifying individuals with actionable molecular mutations, facilitating a personalised management approach for each patient based on their tumour’s molecular profile.

General awareness around the importance of testing at diagnosis is still low, so we developed #PutCancerToTheTest, a digital and social media campaign designed to promote conversation and drive cancer genomic testing as the standard of care. This culminated in a global media event featuring expert speakers across several disciplines to generate on-message coverage worldwide.

Combining engaging social media content with a unique tagline and hashtag, bespoke imagery, a patient video and affiliate materials, #PutCancerToTheTest generated >15 million impressions and >540k engagements online, with activities in six countries so far. 51 consumer, trade and medical publications (including 12 national television and radio broadcasters) attended the media event, resulting in ~30 articles in 15 countries. Together, these activities effectively communicated the importance of cancer genomic testing in the treatment pathway.
