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 Corbett would like to speak to you if you, or someone you know is:


·         Aged 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

OR

·         if you care for someone who meets the above criteria


If you're interested in taking part:

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.

Improving the I T in Frailty care – By Dr Alex Recio-Saucedo and Dr Melinda Taylor

Proactive identification of patients living with frailty takes place mostly in the community or in GP surgeries. When information and systems between these organisations are not integrated, staff reported duplicate identification of patients and of problems in creating and/or maintaining care plans, which could also be duplicated. read blog >

Frailty seminars - coming soon!
Thu 7th March 13:00-16:30

Patient and public involvement is vital to the success of the CLAHRC.

We would be pleased to hear from you if you are interested in becoming involved in our research and implementation.
