Therapeutic radiographers asked to support research to help people living with and beyond cancer

NCRI research

The National Cancer Research Institute is asking healthcare professionals to pose three priorities or questions that should be researched to benefit adults who are living with or beyond cancer.

Feng Li, programme manager for the NCRI, explains what they are looking for: "The UK has a growing population of people affected by cancer, yet the level of research relevant to people who are living with or after the disease is low compared to other types of cancer research."

Feng continued, "The NCRI has identified that undefined priorities has been a barrier to research in this area. The independent cancer taskforce report recommends defining research priorities for long-term patient needs and survivorship issues."

Feng wants radiographers who work with cancer patients to provide three questions that will help set the agenda for future research.

NCRI is also asking patients and carers to take part.

The survey closing date is 15 November 2017.
