More than 300,000 people in the North West will be living with the short and long-term consequences of cancer by 2030. Personalised interventions are required to reduce the risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, bone fractures, cancer recurrence or second cancers.
Our ambition is to provide integrated care using follow-up strategies after cancer treatment that are relevant, acceptable and use digital technology where appropriate.
Guided by our patient champions whilst identifying and personalising treatments, we will adopt an integrated physical and mental health approach to reduce the burden of multiple long-term conditions after cancer therapy.
The Living with and Beyond Cancer Theme contains the following three programmes:
- Improving cardiovascular health in cancer patients
- Optimising bone health in cancer patients
- Transforming the detection of cancer recurrence and second cancers
