Understanding the practical, personal and emotional support needs of people living with cancer in the UK, June 2015
Our research for Macmillan compressed by the client team into a single poster for the National Cancer Intelligence Network (NCIN) Cancer Outcomes conference. Winner of its category!
It was exciting to see Macmillan publish their “Hidden at Home” report recently, and to see it making an impact. It looked at the level of social care needs that people with cancer have, and mruk conducted the research that underpinned the report.
Social care covers a wide range of different needs, and inevitably different types of help and support are required to meet these needs. What was really newsworthy in our findings was how much support is being provided by the family and friends of people living with cancer. We found that three quarters of people with practical and personal needs were reliant on support from family and/or friends.
The RNLI, in partnership with the British Canoe Union (BCU), commissioned this project to understand more about participants’ attitudes to risk and safety.
