BJC Supplement on Survivorship

Published: 12 January 2012

Dr Claire Foster and Dr Deborah Fenlon contributed to a special November 2011 edition of the British Journal of Cancer, focussing on new and emerging evidence on the ongoing needs of cancer survivors.

Foster and Fenlon (2011) reveal how recovery from primary cancer treatment requires a rebuilding of lost confidence and how cancer survivors may struggle where confidence is low or appropriate support is lacking; indeed, this loss of self-confidence may itself be a significant barrier to accessing support. They presented a theoretical model on which future interventions can be based and which has been used as the basis for the development of the MSRG Online Intervention.
