In order to better understand the issues around follow-up care and what may be done to improve it, the Behavioural Sciences Unit is currently conducting the ‘Long Term Follow-Up’ study. This involves surveying survivors and their families across Australia and New Zealand about their experience of follow-up care. From this research we are hoping to develop a formal set of guidelines for survivorship care.
We would love to hear about your experience of follow-up care. If you are interested in completing a survey or interview, please click here for more information, or contact Christina Signorelli or Rebecca Hill.
