CLL Advocates NZ Launches a New Zealand Patient Guide

CLL Advocates NZ is pleased to announce the official launch of its patient booklet, CLL – A Guide for Patients in New Zealand. It has been made available in both a digital download and as a hardcopy booklet.

The booklet is being launched at CLL Advocates NZ’s inaugural patient seminar in Auckland and online tonight (14 October). The seminar will discuss ‘What is the state-of-the-art treatment for CLL in New Zealand?’

The booklet was compiled by Leukaemia Care, a national UK blood cancer support charity. Leukaemia Care has kindly granted us permission to adapt the booklet for the New Zealand CLL setting, and to publish it here on our website, and make it available as a printed booklet for distribution in New Zealand. This agreement is in line with CLL Advocates NZ’s commitment to working closely with other CLL patient advocacy groups and to avoid duplicating available high quality work undertaken by others.

Adaptation of the booklet for New Zealand conditions has been undertaken by Gillian Corbett MBChB, FRACPath, MRCP, FRACP, haematologist and Trustee, CLL Advocates NZ, Neil Graham FRACP, FRCP, Executive Director, CLL Advocates NZ, and Catherine Isaac, Trustee, CLL Advocates NZ.

We are most grateful to Leukaemia Care for this very valuable contribution to our work.
