Patient and nurse

Event details

Friday 23 June 2023


Are you a researcher at the University of Sheffield, with an interest in cancer patient experience and quality of life? Want to meet others who share your interest?

Dr Catriona Mayland, Senior Clinical Lecturer and Honorary Consultant in Palliative Care (Dept of Oncology & Metabolism), and Dr Stefania Vicari, Senior Lecturer in Digital Sociology (Dept of Sociological Studies) together lead a new theme of the university's cancer research strategy on enhancing patient experience and value. Together, Catriona and Stefania invite you to this meeting to network with peers from across the University of Sheffield. All university researchers are welcome to attend, from all departments/faculties.

The aim of this first meeting will be to bring together researchers from across different faculties and departments for you to learn about each other's research and come to a collective understanding to shape the scope of the theme and discuss future opportunities together. The draft scope of the research theme will be a subject of discussion - it is currently:

  • Understanding what matters to cancer patients and widening participation;
  • Expanding and improving the use of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) and patient-reported experience measures (PREMs)
  • Reducing mortality and improving patients’ quality of life.

This event is an internal event intended for University of Sheffield researchers. Queries? Contact Rachel Corcoran, Cancer Research Strategy Manager via
