Personalised Assessment and Care in Cancer

Project overview

The Wessex Cancer Alliance has commissioned the Centre for Psychosocial Research in Cancer (CenTRIC+) to develop a systematic approach to identifying those who need more or less support to do well during and beyond their cancer treatment in order to personalise their care accordingly. We are working with cancer specialist health care professionals and people affected by cancer to co-design an approach for use in clinical practice. We will implement the approach in a small number of sites to assess usability and acceptability.
