Cancer, Supportive and Palliative Care Research Group

Institute for Applied Health and Wellbeing (LIFE)

The Cancer Care research group aims to conduct quality research that will provide real patient benefit and improve the lives of those affected by cancer.


The group is led by Professor Kinta Beaver and works closely with clinical partners in the NHS. We have a strong history of work that examines the information needs and decision making preferences of people with cancer and evaluating nurse-led interventions.

We also have expertise in examining the issues faced by those with advanced cancer, in particular the needs of lay carers.

One of our key research areas is survivorship issues and how we can enhance the lives of people who have completed treatment for cancer and are living with their diagnosis.
