Cancer symptom management priority setting -adult
Are you over 18 and living with cancer or looking after someone who is?
We are interested in your views regarding which cancer symptoms have the biggest impact on daily life for people that are living with or have lived with cancer and those that take care of them. This will help us identify gaps in prevention, detection or management of these symptoms and provide a clear directions for future research and clinical trials.
This is the first survey of its kind within Australia or New Zealand. Your responses will assist us to advocate for and prioritise research into new medications, medical devices and non-medication treatments and clinical trials that, in the view of people living with cancer, their families and health professionals who provide cancer care, have the greatest potential to significantly improve quality of life. This will look at the symptoms with the biggest impact during your anti-cancer treatment journey and through to life after cancer.
This survey is being conducted by a team of investigators from the Cancer Symptom Trials (CST) unit at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS).
