Everyday memory and processing in patients with high-grade glioma

10 September 2020

This is a survey inviting patients, their family and friends, and healthcare professionals to share their experiences of how everyday memory and processing is altered following radiotherapy.
The results of this survey will work towards developing a simple screening tool to detect changes in functioning in patients with high-grade glioma after the completion of radiotherapy.


  • A patient with high-grade glioma who has received radiotherapy
  • A close friend or family member of a person with high-grade glioma who has received radiotherapy
  • A healthcare professional who regularly works with patients with high-grade glioma
  • Aged over 18

About the researcher

I am currently a PhD student based at the Marie Curie Palliative Care Research Centre at Cardiff University. My PhD is focussed on developing a screening tool for the cognitive deficits experienced by patients with high-grade gliomas after receiving radiotherapy.
This is being done with the aim of optimising patient care by ensuring that patients have access to the correct resources dependent on their individual needs.
