When it comes to brain tumours, accessing simple, factual information can be difficult. There is a great deal of conflicting information available that can leave you feeling confused and overwhelmed. We’ve created the brain tumour Know Hows so you can access concise, clear and impartial information about current topics. As with all of our resources, where they involve health information, our Know Hows are written following our rigorous Information Standard process, so you know that the information is trustworthy and reliable.
At brainstrust we want everybody affected by a brain tumour to be informed and resourced to live the life they want. When you understand a topic, you can make the right decisions for you. These Know Hows will probably lead you to do further reading, but they provide an excellent starting point so you can fully engage with issues faced by our community.
