After our first few successful #CSSMchats, we would like to put a general call out for people to facilitate a chat! The chats are always on the last Wednesday of each month – if you are in North America, we host them at 9pm EST/6pm PST. However, in the next few months, we would especially like to feature a facilitator based in Europe doing a chat in the evening there so that our European followers can participate in a chat!
We welcome applications from anyone involved in cancer survivorship – researchers, healthcare professionals, survivors, advocates, organizations* and caregivers. As you may have seen from previous chats, our facilitators raise 4 discussion topics during the evening around one central theme. These topics and themes can be varied – but we ask that you try to involve as much of our community as possible, for example – researchers/healthcare professionals must seek to involve survivors in at least most of the discussion topics for the night.
We don’t want to overly dictate the content of chats, so if you have an idea and want to discuss whether it will work for a chat – please do send us a message either on the @CancerSurvSM Twitter account (our DMs are open) or via the form here and we will happily discuss it with you.
As an aside, if you’d like to talk to our community but don’t think a #CSSMchat is suitable for you – we have some interesting plans in the works to allow people to take over our account for a period of time to discuss personal experiences, thoughts, research, advocacy etc. Stay tuned!
*if your organization is a non-academic, for-profit enterprise, please do contact us first to discuss.
