We’re commited to engaging and respecting the cancer community. Your advocacy provides vital guidance in this research. We believe in collaboration and partnership so that in our research there is nothing about the community without the community. We believe this improves research and helps make sure it is work that is relevant and useful.
Right now, we are looking for people who currently have cancer or have had cancer in the past or have cared for someone with cancer, such as a partner or family member.
Our projects in cancer include developing and testing new treatments to help people manage strong feelings, improve sleep, and reduce tiredness or fatigue after cancer.
If having a voice in research around emotions, sleep, or fatigue in cancer is something you might want to do, we would like to hear from you and talk more about working together. Also, if you know anyone else who may be interested, we would appreciate you passing on our contact information to them.
If you have any questions, concerns or want to talk about any aspect of your role as a consumer member of our team, reach out to Josh joshua.wiley at monash.edu.
Although developed for the United Kingdom, these guides have helpful information for understanding what it means to be a consumer or community member of a research team and help navigate the jargon used in research.
