To clarify the main doubts posed by patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (CCRm), a series of videos and infographics were launched that aim to enlighten the whole community. Based on nine most common questions on the subject, nine experts respond, on video, in a simple, direct and clear way.

Until July 7, the nine videos will be available on the news portal Jornal Médico. The seventh has the participation of Sérgio Xavier Azevedo, from Centro Hospitalar Universitário do Porto, answering the question “How long will I be in treatment or how many treatments will I have to undergo?”.

The initiative also includes interventions by specialists Mariana Malheiro, Nuno Teixeira Tavares, Edgar Pratas, Ana Faria, Ana Paula Ferreira, Jorge Manuel Cruz, Albertina Milheiro Santos and Sofia Amorim Oliveira.

This is an initiative promoted by AMGEN, with the support of the Portuguese Oncology Nursing Association (AEOP), Europacolon Portugal – Support for patients with digestive cancer and the GICD – Research Group, Digestive Cancer.
