NCRI 2018 | NCRI research priorities: improving care of those living with and beyond cancer
As the number of patients that survive cancer continue to increase, the challenge of how to ensure the long-term wellbeing of patients arises. Here, Diana Greenfield, RN, PhD, of Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Sheffield, UK, stresses the need for implementing different models of care in order to meet this challenge, including increasing the role of clinical nurse specialists, and how the focus is on upskilling through workforce toolkits and a competency framework. Speaking at the 2018 National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) Cancer Conference, held in Glasgow, UK, Prof. Greenfield also discusses the importance of involving patients in research, and how the NCRI’s top 10 research priorities aim to help guide research councils and charities in order to improve the care of those living with and beyond cancer.
