What’s the project?
Cancer is tough on the mind as well as the body. Some children and young people, following medical treatment for cancer, experience worry, sadness and upsetting thoughts/memories.
These feelings are completely natural, often they can go away quickly, but for some young people it can last longer.
Bethany and the Liverpool research team would like to understand the emotional impact of cancer in children and young people. To do this, the research team would like to find out more about the thoughts and feelings experienced by young people aged 12-18 years in their daily lives by asking them to complete an online survey.
The team hope that this study will help develop a better understanding of the emotional impacts of cancer and thus help to improve the psycho-social support available.

The team are asking young people to complete an online survey that takes around 15-20 minutes.
The team would like as many young people as possible to take part (ideally >100 over all our recruitment approaches). Once the study is complete, you will be sent a copy of the findings.
- Must be based in the UK
- Must be 12-18 years
- Must have completed active cancer treatment (any type) ≥ 3 months ago
- Must have access to internet and a device such as a phone, tablet or laptop
- For young below under 16, the team have appropriate assent/consent procedures in place, whereby a parent/guardian must consent to their young person taking part, if they wish to.
To thank the young people who participate for their time, you will be entered into a prize draw to win one of four £50 vouchers.
The team have included some signposting information for young people and families should they feel they would benefit from support more generally.
