Macmillan CREW Cohort

A cohort study to explore recovery of health and well-being following primary treatment of colorectal cancer

Funder: Macmillan Cancer Support

Lead Researcher: Professor Claire Foster
Research Team: Dr Sally Wheelwright, Amy Din, Dr Chloe Grimmett, Dr Jane Winter

The purpose of this study was to follow a thousand people who had colorectal cancer to map out the path of recovery over time, to look at how long it takes to feel healthy and well again after cancer. Although it is known that people who have had cancer are likely to suffer a number of problems, both mental and physical, as a result of the disease and treatment; the normal course of recovery has not been described before.
