What healthcare professionals can do...


  1. Get to know us as individuals - our experiences are not the same.

  2. Treat us with respect, warmth and care.   

  3. Communicate with us clearly and consistently (verbal and written).

  4. Give us the information we need at the level we want it.

  5. Tell us about the best and most recent treatments available.

  6. Discuss our options with us and treat us as an equal partner in decision making.  

  7. Be positive and offer us hope even when our options are limited.

  8. Recognise that we are the experts in living with lung cancer every day.

  9. Be aware that our family members may have different information needs to us.

  10. Do not blame us for having lung cancer and help to overcome lung cancer stigma.
