Take part in research into storytelling interventions for families affected by cancer (Cardiff University)

Cancer Type




The researcher is conducting a study as part of a clinical doctorate to examine opinions on storytelling to promote psychological well-being in cancer patients and their families

This study is the first stage in the development of a storytelling intervention for families that have experienced cancer. The researcher is looking for people who have lived experience of their own or a family member’s cancer diagnosis and treatment, as well as health professionals working in cancer care and storytelling practitioners. This study is open to people over the age of 18 who are in one of the above groups. You do not need any prior experience of storytelling or wellbeing interventions.

There will be an online interview lasting 25- 40 minutes followed by either one or two online surveys a few weeks apart. It is expected that the surveys will take no more than 20 minutes to complete. All data will be anonymised and only the research team will be able to see your individual responses.

You will be given a £10 voucher by way of thanks at the end of your participation in the study, even if you withdraw from the study once started.

The researchers hope that you will find taking part an interesting experience. Your contribution will help them understand what is important when developing a storytelling intervention for families that experienced cancer.
