Stigma and Bladder Cancer in Spain infographic
In collaboration with Grupo Español de Pacientes con Cáncer (GEPAC), we developed a new infographic titled “Stigma: The invisible side of bladder cancer”. This infographic highlights the impact of stigma on bladder cancer patients based on data from 312 patients and carers, including 73 from Spain, who shared their experiences through surveys and qualitative interviews
The themes explored in the infographic include:
- The disease disadvantages
- The experience of internal stigma
- The experience of external stigma
The research was conducted to gain a deeper understanding of the impact of bladder cancer on patients and carers and to explore the existence, manifestation, and evolution of stigma within the bladder cancer patient community.
Helpful tool for advocacy and awareness
To support patient groups in their advocacy efforts, the World Bladder Cancer Patient Coalition has also developed a complementary advocacy guide in both international and local versions. This guide provides suggestions on how to use the infographic to raise awareness among healthcare professionals, stakeholders, and the wider community.
