Full description:

We are looking for people who have experience of colon cancer, either patients or their carers, to increase our understanding of the reasons behind unplanned hospital visits in the months that followed a colon cancer diagnosis and treatment. We would like to make sure we have clear and appropriate research objectives, by gathering individual experiences of interactions with healthcare.
Your involvement will help shape the impact that our research will have on detecting risks and preventing unplanned hospital visits for people diagnosed with colon cancer. This would involve one or two short discussions via telephone or video call.

Inequalities in Cancer Outcomes research group at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

Why is cancer survival poorer in some population groups in countries with universal access to healthcare? Why does access to optimal cancer care vary between different cancer patients? What are the mechanisms leading to such disparities?
These are the type of questions our research aims to answer. Our ambition is to reduce these inequalities, ensuring that everyone, regardless of their socio-demographic background, benefits from improvements in cancer care.
