Support meeting for Patients on Tasigna

The past few months showed several patients on Glivec shifting to Tasigna. Some of them signified their interest to be in touched with other patients who are going through the same emotional and physical stress. On April 16th, a small group meeting was held in my office. There were 10 participants who shared their coping strategies with the side-effects of the drug. One patient was encouraged by the group to be more compliant and strictly follow the physician’s instructions. They verbalized their willingness to offer emotional support to new patients. They agreed to meet again on July 16 and every quarter thereafter.
