BCNZ is supporting a research project focused on improving early diagnosis for patients with bowel cancer. Led by Professor Ross Lawrenson of The University of Waikato Medical Research Centre, an important part of the study will be understanding the experience of New Zealanders who have been diagnosed with bowel cancer, and how their experience could have been improved.
“We are proud to support this vital research into bowel cancer. The first stage is understanding the current experience by people diagnosed and we’ll be working closely with the research team to understand the recommendations that arise when they conclude the project.” Rebekah Heal, General Manager Bowel Cancer NZ.
The research team are seeking participants who have been diagnosed with bowel cancer in the last six to twelve months. If you can assist with the study, it will only take 20 to 30 minutes of your time by phone – please contact Dr Tania Blackmore on 07 837 9483 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
