Cancer Focus Group: Help Improve Educational Programs

Have you been diagnosed with cancer? Have you taken care of someone with cancer?

Help the Binaytara Foundation and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center develop and improve educational programs for cancer patients by participating in a research focus group.

About the Focus Group

It is known that cancer patients have unmet information needs that can lead to a stressful and challenging experience before and during treatment. The Binaytara Foundation and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center are organizing small focus groups with cancer patients and their non-medical caregivers to understand what health-related information they needed when they found out they or their loved one had cancer, where they went for that information, whether they successfully obtained the information, and if they did obtain the information, what they did with it. Results from these discussions will help support the development of educational programs that empower cancer patients to make healthcare choices to improve quality of life. The Binaytara Foundation organizes regular cancer education programs to educate and empower cancer patients and their loved ones to manage their health.
