Could you help us?
LifeChamps is a research study that aims to develop a support service for middle-aged and older people with cancer and their families/friends after cancer treatment.
Please help us understand what health needs, priorities and care requirements middle-aged and older people have after cancer treatment. What aspects of your health care would you want the service to help with?
Participation is either a short online survey or telephone interview.
We look forward to hearing from you
