Funder Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation

Project Overview

There is little research involving lung cancer patients treated with curative intent (CI) to inform service development and optimal timing of supportive interventions for those who have completed treatment. By gathering patient reported outcomes from this group we will understand patterns of recovery and identify appropriate interventions. This pilot will determine the feasibility of establishing a cohort of lung cancer patients treated with CI to gather patient reported outcomes to inform improvements in care and support. Having data on recovery of health and well-being will inform the nature of follow-up care patients receive and help patients make decisions about treatment that will impact on their everyday lives. By establishing a cohort of  lung cancer patients treated with CI we will be able to explore a range of factors that influence recovery of health and well-being; including mapping patterns of recurrence, symptoms, identifying unmet needs, support and skills required to manage these.
