Living With & Beyond Cancer 

Women’s Health Initiative

The National Cancer Strategy 2017-2026 places emphasis on improving the quality of life and experience of people who have been diagnosed with cancer. In collaboration with investigators from the Enhancing Cancer Awareness & Survivorship Programmes (ECASP) group, we have developed a nurse-led pilot clinical trial to support women with a history of breast and gynaecological cancers in Cork University Hospital. This Irish Cancer Society supported “Women’s Health Initiative” is investigating the use of electronic patient reported outcomes (PROs), with the goal of improving symptom burden and quality of life for patients (Principal Investigators: Professor Roisin Connolly, Professor Josephine Hegarty).
