Guiding and supporting digestive cancer patients with MyJourney

As part of the SHAPE* programme, Servier has been working with the patient association Digestive Cancers Europe (DiCE). This collaboration is bearing fruit and giving rise to regular publications on Digestive cancers (gastric cancer, colorectal cancer). With brochures on managing emotions, communicating with healthcare professionals, nutrition, and now what to expect during the cancer journey, Servier has made a firm commitment to support patients in fighting the disease.

The MyJourney brochure has been designed to guide and support digestive cancer patients, families and carers throughout their cancer journey. Its objective is to give patients a clearer idea of what they can expect along the way. Fighting digestive cancer is one of the core priorities of Servier, which places great importance on working with patients to best meet their needs. Co-created with digestive cancer patients, advocates, carers and healthcare professionals, the MyJourney series reflects this desire. This latest series of brochures is dedicated to the patient journey and comes in two versions:

  • The first, for patients and carers, looks at the different aspects of the cancer journey, including diagnosis, day-to-day management, and treatment. The brochure is supplemented with three specific leaflets on pancreatic, colorectal and gastric cancer.
  • The second, for healthcare professionals, offers recommendations on how to better support people with gastrointestinal cancer.

These brochures come in the wake of MyMoodMyDialogue and MyFood, which offer a wealth of practical advice on looking after emotional health, communicating with healthcare professionals and nutrition.

Launched by Servier in 2018, the SHAPE programme is committed to supporting patients with gastrointestinal cancer, by including them in each decision made. In collaboration with the DiCE coalition (of patients, advocates and carers) and healthcare professionals (oncologists, psycho-oncologists, nurses and pharmacists), its objective is to develop the tools needed to improve the quality of life of patients and support them and their families throughout their cancer journey.
