Over 400,000 people are diagnosed with kidney cancer globally each year. Innovations in treatment have resulted in helping people live longer and better than ever before. Their experiences and preferences are an important part of their cancer journey. In this interview, Steve Pointon, patient advocate from Action Kidney Cancer who is in remission from advanced kidney cancer, speaks with Dr Harm van Melick, Consultant Urologist from St Antonius Hospital in Nieuwegein and Utrecht, the Netherlands, about his experiences with shared decision making and the impact it can have on people living with kidney cancer.
