Young Adult Cancer Research Study: RECRUITMENT NEEDED!

The following is a posting we made a few months back… this group is still trying to recruit for the study.

We feel this is a great project and would love help from our community. If you are in the Atlantic Canada region please keep reading to see if you fit their criteria and connect with them if you are interested.

Huge thanks in advance!


A research team at the Dalhousie University Family Medicine Teaching Unit (Fredericton location) is looking for participants to be involved in a study that will examine cancer follow-up care needs. If you were diagnosed with cancer in the last 1-5 years, were between the ages of 18-34 when you were diagnosed, and received your cancer follow-up care in the Atlantic Provinces, you may be eligible to participate. The study involves a one-time telephone interview and the option to complete a paper survey.

The purpose of the interview will be to gain information regarding your experiences with cancer follow-up care since you finished cancer treatment. This study will also look at factors that may impact your psychological and social well-being and how cancer has impacted these areas of your life. Results from this study will be used to create recommendations for the development of a cancer follow-up care model that will better address the needs of young adults.
