Quality of life, depression and anxiety in breast cancer survivors

03 May 2018

We know that some women may experience both physical and psychological changes after a diagnosis of breast cancer. In order to learn more about this, researchers in the EHR group, in collaboration with researchers at the Clinical Practice Research Datalink, are inviting women both with a previous diagnosis of breast cancer and those never diagnosed with cancer to answer some questions about their feelings and experiences. Comparing the answers from these two groups of women will help us to understand whether women who have had breast cancer are at greater risk of developing anxiety, depression or deterioration of quality of life, in the years after their cancer diagnosis. We hope that this knowledge will eventually help healthcare providers to target their resources more effectively to help prevent these problems. Read more about they study here.
