The Mesothelioma Cancer Network strives to bring our readers the most accurate information about the deadly cancer mesothelioma. To that end, our team works alongside medical experts who check our pages for accuracy and also contribute new content. Learn more about how our contributors help make the Mesothelioma Cancer Network more accurate, trustworthy, and helpful.
The medical reviewers we work with are board-certified, licensed practitioners, each having spent years in their respective fields of study. They follow a precise review process to make sure the information we provide is up-to-date, well-researched, and attributed to proper sources.
Each Mesothelioma Cancer Network contributor was specifically chosen due to their experience, certifications, and strong reputations.
Mesothelioma is a life-threatening cancer that claims the lives of thousands every year. Its poor prognosis means that victims often have shorter times to make informed choices about their medical and legal options.
For this reason, we believe that victims of asbestos exposure deserve helpful, reliable, and trustworthy information — and we firmly believe our contributors will uphold these principles.
Our contributors also go through a rigorous vetting process to make sure the content they review, edit, and write adheres to the highest medical and written standards.
Each contributor and author that appears on our site must follow the same principles as the Mesothelioma Cancer Network team.
These values are:
Accuracy: Providing the most accurate information is essential for mesothelioma victims and families whose lives are often uprooted by a shocking and grim diagnosis.
Helpfulness: A mesothelioma diagnosis changes the lives of patients and their loved ones, and while navigating this difficult time, it is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed. Our site takes a holistic approach to mesothelioma, breaking down how it is caused, treated, and paid for in easy-to-read pages.
Justice: Mesothelioma is an entirely preventable cancer. As medical experts continue to strive for a cure, our goal is to help patients get a sense of justice, whether by learning about their treatment options or how to access legal compensation.
Trustworthiness: A medical review gives patients a sense of trust, as they know that a professional has verified what they have read.
