We need you - Making a difference to the lives of older cancer survivors

23 August 2018

Our researchers have been working for the last 4 years to improve the lives of people living with and surviving serious illness.

As part of that research we often need to speak to people who have experience of illness. It's their stories that can change lives for others.

Dr Teresa Corbett is beginning a fresh piece of research looking at how older people who have survived cancer deal with other illnesses they may have. So in many cases people may have overcome cancer, but live with severe asthma or diabetes. To begin her work Dr Corbette would like to speak to you if you, or someone you know is:

·         Arged over 70

·         Have finished treatment for cancer in the past 2 years OR who are on ‘active surveillance’ or ‘watchful waiting’.

·         Have at least one other long-term health condition or illness


·         if you care for someone who meets the above criteria

The event is scheduled for the very near future - Tuesday 4 September (2pm-4pm, Highfield House Hotel, Southampton). So ideally we need to know of interest in this project by Thursday August 30.

How do people mobilise social network support? – Presentation by Ivaylo Vassilev at the International Sociological Association Conference in Toronto

The Genie intervention appears to be effective in bridging the gap between cognitive engagement with networks and making potential changes, and its activation in the context of people’s everyday life. Its impact in activating networks and supporting behavior change is likely to be enhanced by the availability of local resources enabling people to live well. read blog >
