Leading health sciences researchers undertake radical new cancer survivorship study

Researchers from the Macmillan Survivorship Research Group (MSRG) have developed the first study of its kind looking at the experiences and needs of people after primary treatment of colorectal cancer.

The University has developed the ColoREctal Wellbeing (CREW) study to look at a number of factors influencing recovery which takes into account the disease itself, the level of treatment patients receive, the support available to them and the range of coping skills they have.

Results from this study will, for the first time, inform health care providers and professionals across the country about what helps or hinders rapid and effective recovery and who has the confidence and ability to manage their own problems.  It will also help identify areas for the development of interventions to aid the recovery process of those who may be at risk of experiencing problems.
