The Less Survivable Cancers Taskforce has launched a new survey to gain a greater understanding of the experiences of people who have a less survivable cancer and who receive palliative care.
We want to hear from as many people as possible who have experience of palliative care and the less survivable cancers (cancers of the lungs, liver, stomach, pancreas, oesophagus and brain) - either their own experience or experience of a loved one.
The survey aims to provide the Taskforce with insights to lobby for improvements to palliative care services, and to highlight any good practice. The support services of the Taskforce’s member charities report that people have varied experiences of palliative care, and this survey aims to provide statistical and anecdotal evidence to identify areas of improvement. The Taskforce will produce a short report on the anonymised findings.
The survey should take around 15 minutes to complete. You can respond anonymously or can include your email address at the end if they would like to be kept up to date with the findings of the survey.
