Cancer outcomes, including survival rates, have improved significantly over the years, but in order to ensure every person with cancer has the very best diagnosis, treatment and care, more research is needed.
The Cancer Awareness, Screening and Diagnostic Pathways Research Group (CASP) exists to support colleagues engaged in applied health cancer projects.
In particular, those projects related to improving earlier cancer diagnosis through:
- Screening access and uptake
- Symptom recognition and help-seeking
- Primary care diagnosis and referral
- The primary-secondary care interface
- Care pathway redesign
*These are all funded by the TRANSFORMing Cancer Outcomes in Yorkshire programme (TRANSFORM)
