Psychological factors, pain and fatigue in cancer survivors

09 February 2017

Many cancer survivors experience physical symptoms, including pain and fatigue, whilst others do not. We would like to investigate whether the way cancer survivors think and feel is affected by the physical symptoms that they experience. This could help services to design more effective psychological therapies to support people to manage their emotional wellbeing better.
