Macmillan Survivorship Research Group

Around 2 million people are living with or beyond cancer in the UK and this figure is rising by more than 3% per year (Macmillan, 2008). Whilst increasing survival rates are to be celebrated, the experiences and needs of those who have completed their primary cancer treatment are relatively neglected (DoH, 2007).

Health professionals may be unaware of who is struggling with problems (Maher & Makin, 2007). Self management support can increase quality of life (QoL) and confidence in managing problems associated with cancer (Lev et al, 2001). Our research programme will identify who is most likely to need self management support following primary treatment and what forms this should take.
