Together for cancer

Our collaborations with patient organizations

Working together with Global and European patient organizations

Ipsen has worked together with a number of Global and European communities supporting people affected by cancer:

“The International Kidney Cancer Coalition (IKCC) views Ipsen as a key leader in helping to amplify the patient voice and make a meaningful difference to people living with kidney cancer. It is clear that they share our vision: To reduce the global burden of kidney cancer.”

“As the incidence of liver cancer in Europe keeps rising, we had to act now. For the first time, we have produced a social media campaign to raise awareness about the signs and symptoms of liver cancer as well as preventive measures that can help reduce its risk. To bring this neglected topic in the political agenda, we have drafted and launched in collaboration with European Liver Patients’ Association (ELPA) our White Paper on Liver Cancer – No Patient Left Behind. The summary document of the White Paper will be translated in several of our Members’ languages and will be used as the basis to initiate at national level discussions about how to improve liver cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and patient care. We look forward to supporting our Members implement the findings of the White Paper in their respective countries. We are delighted that Ipsen is among the funding partners supporting these activities.”

Dedicated websites built with the patient community

Ipsen has worked together with patient organizations and healthcare professionals to create websites for people living with some types of cancer.

If you have any questions about an Ipsen medicine or service you can submit a question to Ipsen medical information here. As a pharmaceutical company we are not permitted to provide you with medical advice so for any questions about treatment and care, a healthcare professional is the best person to speak to.

Finding information and support

It can sometimes feel overwhelming to look for information about a condition. As well as speaking to a doctor or other healthcare professionals, there are a number of websites that offer reliable and accurate information. Patient organization websites are often a good place to start for information and guidance on how to access physical and emotional support.

If you don’t know what local organizations exist, Global and European organisations can often help people to find local resources and groups.

Experiences of living with cancer

Although discovering that you are living with a certain condition might feel quite daunting at times, you are certainly not alone. Behind every person, there is a story and we believe you tell that story best.

If you have been affected by any of the experiences or topics discussed in this video, talk to your healthcare professional who may be able to direct you to the additional support you need.
