iwCLL 2017 | How can doctors help empower CLL patients?

Constantine Tam, Deborah Henderson and Matthew Davids

Deborah Henderson, chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patient advocate and journalist, comes together with her doctor Constantine Tam, MBBS, MD, FRACP, FRCPA from the University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia and Matthew Davids, MD from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, MA to discuss patient-doctor relationships. Deborah begins by asking the CLL experts how they handle patients who, like her, want to empower themselves with information regarding their condition. The panel talk about different ways that patients can educate themselves and how their doctor can assist them in evaluating and processing this information. This discussion highlights the importance of patients and doctors being able to collaborate and have open conversations together. This video was recorded at the International Workshop on Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (iwCLL) 2017 held in New York, NY.
