PIVOT Program

The Patient and Investigator Voices Organizing Together, known as PIVOT, joins patients, caregivers, families and others who share the goal of eliminating cancer and improving treatment for those affected with researchers from The University of Kansas Cancer Center.  

PIVOT's Vision:
Patients, families, caregivers and researchers accelerating innovative approaches to re-define cancer research together!

PIVOT's Mission:
To advocate for cancer research relevant to patients by:

a) Including patients' voices, lived-experiences and perspectives in every step of the decision-making process to inform all aspects of research;

b) Promoting meaningful partnerships, shared understanding and ongoing communications among patients, families, caregivers and researchers across the spectrum of cancer research;

c) Collaboratively developing education and training among patients, families, caregivers and researchers. The goals are to gain exposure to other perspectives, promote personal growth and increase capacity to enhance the KU Cancer Center and the cancer research community.
