Rebecca Foster is a Research Fellow in the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Southampton. Her research interests include cancer survivorship, supportive cancer care and self management in long term conditions. She is currently working on an evaluation of a new approach to follow up care in prostate cancer. Other recent studies include a longitudinal observational study of cancer survivors following surgical treatment for lung cancer. Rebecca also has an interest in interprofessional education.

I am interested in how we can gather information from people who use health services and, by analysing that information, understand how care processes can be improved.

Development, implementation and evaluation of the True NTH Supported Self Management and Follow Up Care Programme

Traditional follow-up care for men with prostate cancer is resource intensive and there is little evidence to show that it effectively meets men’s needs. This project is developing, implementing and evaluating a new model of care, which provides men with the knowledge, resources and support to self-manage their own follow-up.
