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
