The NCRI Living With and Beyond Cancer research initiative

Our previous work shows that undefined research priorities are a barrier to research in this area and funders have said there is a shortage of high quality research proposals. We are therefore working on to identify research priorities that matter most to people affected by cancer and relevant health and social care professionals.

Working with the James Lind Alliance, we have set up the Living With and Beyond Cancer Priority Setting Partnership to identify research priorities that matter most to people affected by cancer and relevant health care professionals. Find out more here.

  • We plan to develop research strategies around the JLA priorities and evaluate the NCRI Clinical Studies Groups (CSGs) structure supporting research relevant to living with and beyond cancer once we have identified the final priorities.

 

The NCRI Living With and Beyond Cancer research initiative is funded by underspend from the NCRI Lung Cancer SuPaC Initiative, cofounded by Macmillan Cancer Support, Department of Health (DH), Medical Research Council (MRC), Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), Chief Scientist Office (CSO) and HSC Public Health Agency Research & Development Division (Northern Ireland).

Any future initiative in living with and beyond cancer research will be built on this NCRI initiative and the clear research priorities identified.
