Living with and beyond cancer - do you have any questions?

Do you have questions about living with and beyond cancer that you would like answered by research?

People are now living longer after a cancer diagnosis; more people in the UK are living with or beyond cancer. But many people, including carers, are not living well. More and more people are living with impacts of cancer and its treatment.

A lot of research is looking for new cancer treatments, but there’s not enough research relevant to living with and beyond cancer. Research is only effective when we know what questions we want answered. There are so many possible avenues of research that we need a way to decide which is the most important.

The National Cancer Research Institute* (NCRI) is bringing researchers together to collaborate and find ways to answer research questions that should help people live better with, and beyond, cancer.

The first stage of this project is a Priority Setting Partnership. A Priority Setting Partnership brings together patients, carers, and health and social care professionals to work out what are the most important questions for researchers to answer.

Your experience of living with and beyond cancer is needed – tell us your questions that you would like answered by research to improve the quality of life of people affected by cancer.

Tell us the questions for research and help us to improve the lives of people affected by #cancer #NCRI_LWBC
