Patient Survey - Northumbria University
27 October 2017
This survey is now closed - please see below communication:
I previously contacted you earlier this year in connection with some research I have been running exploring what advice, if any, cancer patients are receiving about physical activity after their diagnosis. I believe your group were good enough to help advertise our online survey to your members, and so I am now contacting you again to let you know that we are now closing this survey. As such, if this project is still advertised to your members, I would be grateful if this can be amended/deleted to show we are no longer collecting data.
We have received a fantastic response to our request for information on this subject. A large number of patients have shared their experiences with us and have given us a great deal of detail on how activity is, or in some cases, is not, promoted to people after cancer. I am hoping to start formally analysing the data in the near future.
I would like to thank you for your help in advertising this project. If I can provide any further information about this project or any other assistance, please do let me know.
