The cancer team at Hywel Dda Health Board have been awarded funding from Wales Cancer Network and Bevan Commission Cancer Innovation fund for a Suspected Cancer Health Optimisation and Prehabilitation Project.
The cancer team would like to understand the information individuals received, or would have liked to have received, in relation to their health and wellbeing, from people who have recently experienced a referral to rule out or confirm a cancer diagnosis.
The team are calling on individuals who have experienced a referral to rule out or confirm a cancer diagnosis, that are willing to share their patient experience by filling in an online access to health and wellbeing information questionnaire. The questionnaire should only take approximately 10 minutes to complete, and your views will be used to plan future information provided to people.
The questionnaire can be accessed by clicking on the links below:
Prof Tom Crosby, Clinical Director of Cancer Services in Wales said:
“This project has the potential to make a huge difference to outcomes of cancer patients in Wales. Involving patients in producing the materials by asking what information is important to them makes this project unique and will certainly help to shape the National Prehabilitation Framework.”
