Now also in Chinese: Patient-friendly summary of ELN recommendations on CML management in 11 languages
While treatment guidelines are recognised as being the standard of care by haematologists, they can be difficult to understand by patients. To improve the information available to patients, an international CML workgroup of patient organisations and experts have developed a patient-friendly summary of the European LeukemiaNet's recommendations for CML management. Thanks to a great community effort, the summary is now available in Chinese (new!), English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Macedonian, Polish, Serbian, Hungarian and Hebrew! The summary aims to help patients to better understand CML management and communicate with their doctors regarding treatment and diagnostics. The original recommendations for physicians were published by CML experts on behalf of the European LeukemiaNet (ELN) in the Journal of Clinical Oncology in 2009. Find the summaries in all languages at http://cmladvocates.net/cmlsummary.
Thanks to Shanghai Roots & Shoots, CML Home of Hope for providing the Chinese translation!
