Beyond cancer

New UK-wide project seeking to help people living with and beyond cancer.

Beyond cancer

The College is delighted to support a new UK-wide project which seeks to help people living with and beyond cancer. 

More and more people are living with the consequences of cancer and its treatment. While a lot of research is focused on finding new cancer treatments, an increasing number of people are concerned that there’s not enough research relevant to living with and beyond cancer.

The National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) and the James Lind Alliance (JLA) have set up a Priority Setting Partnership to identify what areas require further research, and have launched a new online survey to help gather the experience of patients, carers and health professionals.  

The team behind the survey are interested in questions about how to live as well as possible after a cancer diagnosis: these might relate to communication, care, education, long-term effects, mental health, relationships, family, fertility, work, social life, life style, cancer coming back, side effects, wellbeing, finance, etc.  You may have other examples not listed here. 

If you are a cancer patient, carer or health professional, and you can spare 10-15 minutes to complete the online survey, they would love to hear from you. 

You can complete the survey now by clicking here. The closing date for submissions is Sunday 15 October 2017.
