The aim of this project is to develop an agreed core outcome measurement set for research and clinical practice.

By interviewing patients and staff from two cancer centres, we will:

  • identify the key essential (and desirable) components needed for an exercise and nutrition based complex intervention for older adults with lung cancer and mesothelioma
  • identify how these should be delivered in terms of time, place, person, duration
  • identify the behaviour changes needed to facilitate implementation in both a trial and clinical practice
