The overall aim of this PhD studentship is firstly to identify, quantify and map core evaluation outcomes for psychosocial cancer initiatives and secondly, to develop and evaluate the utility of a bespoke computer database offering a user-friendly interface that does not require specialist knowledge or skills to navigate. Accordingly, the specific research question being addressed through this project is:
How can we best produce a user-friendly outcomes database that will enable Tenovus Cancer Care and other organisations to rigorously evaluate the relative effectiveness and potential sustainability of psychosocial cancer support and prevention initiatives designed to improve the care of people affected by cancer across Wales?
