The scope of the CREDO project is very broad and many of its concerns may be unfamiliar to people. We have
therefore developed a video to explain what CREDO is about and demonstrate how we anticipate our technologies will
be used in the care of cancer patients. The video is available in 2 different versions - for
health professionals and for patients respectively.
Both versions cover similar ground:
they follow an imaginary patient, Eve Ellis, as she goes through the experience of discovering she has breast cancer
and then being treated (successfully) for it.
The first version ("65 Decisions" - 13 minutes running time) is designed for cancer professionals and clinical
researchers. It explains how cancer informatics technologies developed by Cancer Research UK can help deliver effective,
evidence-based care, and alleviate some of the pressures of achieving this in the face of high demands for services and
constant changes and advances in best practice.
The second version of the video ("A patient’s journey" - 19 minutes) is designed to explain the project to
and their relatives - including those who may be considering participating in the CREDO trial.
For such people, the video
is designed to help inform their decision about whether to participate in the trial.
We hope that the video will also provide insights into some of the experiences patients may have
during their care.
Neither of the videos is very technical: our priority has been to provide accessible material for those who may have
little knowledge of, and perhaps little interest in, information technology. For visitors with a more technical
interest in the CREDO project, more detailed information is available elsewhere on this site.
