Journalists’ guide: Making sense of cancer

By January 10, 2018Public

Cancer World, the magazine of the European Society of Oncology has published a useful guide for journalists writing about cancer.

The Guide is aimed at busy journalists who want to help their audiences make sense of stories about individual experiences – good or bad – scientific or quasi-scientific reports and statistical and other studies.

It covers how to evaluate the credibility of a story, how to explain its relevance to their audience, how to interpret and convey statistical information, how to address implications for policy and practice and more.

It uses many of the articles that have won Best Cancer Reporter Awards as good examples of how to tackle different topics.
