Brought to you by the team at PC4

Join us for this important conversation where two people with lived experience of cancer ask questions of a cancer researcher. In this first episode, Makala Castelli and Terri Byrne are joined by Dr Kristi Milley the national manager of cancer clinical trials group PC4 to explain what consumer involvement in research looks like and why it’s fundamentally important. In this episode we cover:

  • What ‘consumer’ means and how we got stuck with this term.

  • How Kristi became interested in cancer research

  • What Terri and Makala like about contributing to research

  • Makala’s experience of ‘now what?’ post cancer treatment


A note from PC4: Consumers are the most important part of our vision and their contribution is integrated into every aspect of our work. To make sure we achieve this vision PC4 has a Community Network of people interested or affected by cancer. This network helps us develop new cancer in primary care research. If you are interested in joining our Community Network please fill out this form. You can participate at many levels based on your interest and availability.
