The Department of Health funded the first national population-based survey using the CAM in 2008. A report and an academic paper describe the findings from 2008 (see 'Key reports and publications' section below) and the data is available to download for research purposes from the UK Data Archive. Further waves were carried out in 2010 and 2012 and the 2014 survey is currently being collected. The CAM is also being used to establish cancer awareness levels more locally across the country.
The Ovarian CAM has been implemented in the ‘Pathfinder study’. The Cervical, Colorectal/Bowel, Breast and Lung CAMs have been used in national surveys and key results have been published (see links below).
