Cancer research panel

The North Trent Cancer Research Network has a Consumer Research Panel that aims to engage both cancer patients and carers in the process of research into the causes, treatment and palliation of cancer illnesses.

Who we are

Members of the Consumer Research Panel sit on local and national committees which oversee the work of cancer researchers, others are members of the steering groups for research protocols and clinical trials, offer advice on the day-to-day running of cancer units and the work of the professionals involved, and help produce better information and care for patients based on their own experiences.

How we shape research

Some members are also actively involved in planning of research including the application for ethical approval; data gathering and data analysis; authorship of articles in the research literature; and the translation of the research into clinical practice.
