Enhancing Cancer Awareness and Survivorship Programmes

Enhancing Cancer Awareness and Survivorship Programmes

Aim: The goal of the educators and researchers at the Catherine McAuley School of Nursing and Midwifery, University College Cork is to advance the understanding of and the experiences of cancer awareness and cancer survivorship, and thereby improve health care providers' practice and ultimately individuals' experience of cancer survivorship.

The two major research[1] foci within the E.CASP are:

Cancer awareness within the broader spectrum of health promotion
Support of patients and significant others on the cancer survivorship journey, with a particular focus on understanding the needs of individuals on the cancer journey and the development and testing of targeted interventions for individuals with cancer and their family/loved ones.

Full details of the group members and associated research projects are outlined within the attached brochure
