While treatment guidelines and recommendations are recognised as being the standard of care by haematologists, they can be difficult for patients to understand. To improve the information available to patients, an international CML workgroup of patient organisations and experts have developed a patient-friendly summary of recommendations for CML management. Thanks to a great community effort, the summary is now available in seven languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Macedonian and Polish! The summary aims to help patients to better understand CML management and communicate with their doctors regarding treatment and diagnostics. The original recommendations for physicians were published by CML experts on behalf of the European LeukemiaNet (ELN) in the Journal of Clinical Oncology in 2009. See the summary here.
