Caitlin Delaney: Being a cancer patient, I’ve learned that shared decision making is key to taking charge of your diagnosis and treatment journey

Caitlin Delaney, Founder and Managing Director at

“Being a cancer patient, I’ve learned that shared decision-making is key to taking charge of your diagnosis and treatment journey. It’s all about collaborating with your healthcare team, understanding your options, and feeling in control of your own care.

Tune into Congress For Patients Podcast Episode 3, hosted by Sandy Minck, where we are also joined by my wonderful oncologist Yeh Chen Lee. We dive deep into shared decision-making from two unique perspectives, exploring the challenges and importance of shared decision-making.

Not only do I share my experiences as a patient but also discuss the significance of shared decision-making as an advocate. As the founder and director of CareFully Solutions, I’m dedicated to empowering healthcare professionals to provide compassionate care – care which includes communicating with compassion and humanising patients.

Whether you’re a cancer patient, caregiver, or healthcare professional, this episode offers valuable insights into shared decision-making and introduces some fantastic digital tools that can keep you well-informed. Podcast and accompanying resources available here.

Please help spread these valuable resources far and wide. The creation of these resources required meticulous planning by a dedicated team at Humanise Health, led by the powerful advocate and change maker Krystal Barter, and involved gathering insights from patients, healthcare professionals, and patient advocacy groups. The team has invested significant effort to simplify these complex topics into easily understandable language for our audience.

Congress For Patients represents a pioneering initiative, dedicated to empowering patients, one episode at a time, and I’m honoured to have contributed to the advisory board as well as to one of the eight podcast episodes.”
