A research project about Radiotherapy and people who have a Learning Disability and Cancer

Hello, my name is Charlotte Nutting.

I am a PhD research student and a registered Learning Disability Nurse and Social Worker.

I am sharing information about a new research study:
An investigation of the process of Radiotherapy as perceived by people with a Learning Disability who have cancer, their family members, paid carers, and the professionals that support them.

The study will explore multiple stakeholder perspectives and processes involved in Radiotherapy decision making, treatment and post-treatment support in England and Australia for people with Learning Disabilities who have cancer.

I am recruiting people in England to interviews for this research project.

You may be interested in this research study and want to participate in an interview if you are a family member, paid carer or a healthcare, social care or medical professional who has supported a person who has a Learning Disability and cancer with Radiotherapy.

You may also support a person with a Learning Disability who has or has had cancer who may be interested in finding out more this research study.
