The Cancer Conflict (2021)
Directed by Thomas Meadmore, 86 mins
The latest figures from the American Medical Association state that up to 90% of cancer patients look for treatment outside of their healthcare system, a decision that doubles the risk of death.
When taking treatment into their own hands, how will Grant who's chosen evidence-based treatment and Surinder, who's chosen a completely alternative route, make informed choices in an online world of misinformation? And what are the consequences of turning away from experts?
The panel discussion after the screening was moderated by Global Health Film Chair of Trustees Lalitha Bhagavatheeswaran, in discussion with The Cancer Conflict director Thomas Meadmore and Dr Toral Gathani, Surgical Oncologist and Epidemiologist, University of Oxford.
Selected highlights from the panel discussion are available below.
