ABOUT LEAP

LUNG CANCER EDUCATION & ADVOCACY FOR PATIENTS

The Lung Cancer Education and Advocacy for Patients (LEAP) aims to support lung cancer patients in Singapore through providing educational resources on the disease, and creating awareness through our patient advocacy group.

We aim to:

  • Chart a roadmap for lung cancer care from the patient perspective
  • Identify and break down barriers to accessing optimal care
  • Empower and engage patients through educational resources, peer support and community outreach
  • Enable a unified patients’ voice through a dedicated Patient Advocacy Group

PATIENT EDUCATION

Please refer to Lung Cancer Information and Events pages for more details.

PATIENT NAVIGATION PROGRAM

The Patient Navigation Program is set up to assist patients through their cancer journey. A Patient Navigator can help patients in multiple ways including:

  • To orientate new patients/caregivers
  • To provide educational materials
  • To facilitate visit and treatment
  • To provide social and psychological support
  • To facilitate implementation of community care support
  • To facilitate rehabilitation needs

In addition, a dedicated lung cancer nurse will assist in patient counselling, side effect management and supportive care.

PATIENT SUPPORT AND ADVOCACY GROUP

The lung cancer support group is set up for patients, survivors and caregivers to engage and support each other, with the guidance from our medical social workers and lung cancer oncologists. Through therapeutic and social activities, we aim to provide a safe and supportive space for our lung cancer community to journey together. We also believe the voice and strength of our patient advocates to rally together to improve cancer care for all.

If you are interested to join the lung cancer support group or become a patient advocate, please contact us at leap@nccs.com.sg

A week ago, we had our bi-monthly exercise session with our lung cancer patients and caregivers at Singapore Sports Hub. The rain did not stop us from exercising and keeping fit together. Indeed, nothing can keep us down!
If you are a lung cancer patient/caregiver looking to join a lung cancer support group/community, please do not hesitate to email us at leap@nccs.com.sg. We have monthly activities - alternating between physical support group sessions with NCC Medical Social Workers and exercise sessions. These are great opportunities to meet and journey with other patients/caregivers and also keep fit and strong!

In the past year, we have noticed a need from those new to the cancer journey to have a buddy to support them through. Hence this year, we are planning to start a new service that matches newly diagnosed lung cancer patients or caregivers seeking such support to existing patients/caregivers (a.k.a YOU)!
If youd like to volunteer to lend your experiences and be a buddy to a patient/caregiver, please join us by scanning the QR code or heading to https://form.gov.sg/659f9b7b43adfc0012951045. 
Thank you! For any enquiries, please email leap@nccs.com.sg
