Our plans to improve support to young people with cancer.
We were commissioned by the National Cancer Survivorship Initiative, and funded by the Department of Health, to find out how cancer and its treatment impacts the lives of children living with and beyond cancer, and their families.
The children told us that they needed more support and advice to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle during and after treatment, and to keep up with school and their friends.
More Than My Illness examines the non clinical needs of children and young people with cancer.
CLIC Sargent commissioned Insley Consulting to carry out an evaluation of its enhanced service for young people with cancer between March and June 2015.
CLIC Sargent commissioned Insley Consulting to carry out a follow up to The New Normal report published in July 2015. The Stand by Me report is an assessment of the needs of young people with cancer and the important people in their lives.
Between 2011 and 2015 CLIC Sargent delivered a key worker service evaluation project.
Within this, there was an education project to meet specific needs in Scotland. It was recognised that for the key workers in Scotland to support families with coordination of care and enable safe care closer to home, they first needed to ensure that families and community professionals had the information and education they needed.
CLIC Sargent and Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust teamed up to take forward and evaluate a project aimed at improving outcomes for young people with cancer through local services in the south east. London South Bank University was commission by NHS London (through the former National Cancer Action Team) to independently evaluate the project.
