Global Patient Perspectives Roundtable
Navigating Telehealth/Telemedicine & Embracing Shared Decision-Making

Recorded on Saturday, November 21, 2020

This Global Patient Perspectives Roundtable—focused on Telehealth/Telemedicine and Shared Decision-Making—is the first in a series of four roundtables sponsored by GSK. These topics are relevant to patient care and outcomes, options, and autonomy and are especially significant in the backdrop of COVID-19 and of global discussions of health equity. Participating in this active exchange of information across populations, specialties, and regions, attendees will enhance their understanding of these important topics and be more empowered to exercise their rights and options related to each.

  • promote strategic conversations with health care and research communities around specific issues
  • assist all in coming to workable solutions and strategies for moving forward during the COVID-19 pandemic and in its aftermath

Each 60- to 90-minute session will cover a specific topic important to the gynecologic cancer patient communities maneuvering through the health and cancer care system during and after COVID-19 and will include IGCS key opinion leaders, patients-caregivers, and other stakeholders appropriate to the topic.
