Hello, my name is Charlotte Nutting.
I’m a registered Learning Disability Nurse and Social Worker and a PhD research student.
I’m re-posting information about a new approved research project in case it’s of interest to you.
The research is about:
What Radiotherapy is like for people with Learning Disabilities who have cancer, and the family members, paid carers and professionals who support them.
‘Radiotherapy’ is a treatment that is used to treat cancer. It uses strong x-rays to kill cancer cells.
I’m currently recruiting people in England to interviews for this project.
I would like to interview people with Learning Disabilities who have or have had cancer to find out about:
- how they were involved in making decisions about Radiotherapy.
- their experiences of Radiotherapy.
- how they were supported after Radiotherapy.
I would also like to interview paid carers, family members and health and social care professionals to find out about: their experiences supporting people who have Learning Disabilities and cancer with Radiotherapy.
If you would like to find out more you can:
-look at the poster and/or the project webpages https://tinyurl.com/IDandRadio
-watch a short video (less than 3 minutes long) about the project: https://tinyurl.com/RTLDstudy
Please call (0114 2255989) or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions and/or would like to find out more.
Thank you for reading this post.
Kind regards, Charlotte Nutting.
