Help develop cancer diagnostic tests that respond to unmet needs
Take part in a workshop to share your experience of the cancer diagnosis processes in the NHS. The insights will be used to develop a tool that can help efforts to ensure that innovative cancer diagnostic tests respond to unmet needs.
Type of activity: Workshop
Organised by: RAND Europe
Location: Online, via MS Teams
Time commitment: 1 hour in preparation, One-off 2.5 hour online workshop on Tuesday 13th July, 11:00 am – 13:30pm
Payment and Expenses: £250 for participation in the workshop and preparation.
Looking for: 10 people with experience of diverse cancer types and diagnostic tests, and ideally from diverse demographic backgrounds.
Closing date: Tuesday 13 June 2023
Take part in a workshop to share your experience of the cancer diagnosis processes in the NHS. The insights will inform a Cancer Research UK funded research project that is seeking to develop a tool that can help efforts to ensure that innovative cancer diagnostic tests respond to unmet needs.
The tool relates to a concept called diagnostic ‘Target Product Profiles’. These are essentially specification documents that could help guide the development and assessment of new and improved diagnostic tests for cancer. The goal is to enable earlier cancer detection and diagnosis, with the aim of benefiting patients.
The research team are looking for people affected by cancer (patients and loved ones) to talk about the types of issues that matter to them related to undergoing diagnostic testing.
Before the workshop, participants will be sent more information about the project, the aim of the workshop and areas that will be discussed. The workshop will last 2.5 hours and will be conducted online (11.00 – 13.30 on 13th July).
They would like to ensure that the voices of individuals from diverse demographic groups, and with experiences related to diverse types of cancers are heard during the workshop and therefore ask that you complete a short to express your interest in this opportunity.
If you have any questions, please email the research team (email@example.com) who will be happy to give you more information.
