July Newsletter Highlights Include:

CDDF Webinar on Beating Cancer in Europe: Experts Put the Spotlight on Working Together to Drive Change by Inclusion of the Disruptive Voice of Patients.

From nowhere, the term ‘disruption’ has become a word used (and misused) in everyday language.

For many of us, it has traditionally had a negative meaning: for example, “he was always disruptive – causing trouble.”

However, it can be used more positively – indeed in business, it has come to mean something that can “change the traditional way that an industry operates, especially in a new and effective way.”

Last month CRUK shared a podcast “Scientific disruption: what is it, and do we need it?” – you can listen here.

Disruptive science has been defined as “work that introduces breaks with the status quo and carves out new directions for scientific inquiry” (Park et al., 2023, Nature).

So, “inclusion of the Disruptive Voice of Patients” can be seen as a call to arms to drive forward positive change – to use our lived experiences and voices to challenge existing barriers and assumptions to address and correct current inequities.
