Research Prioritization Exercise

The aim of this study is to identify unanswered questions about the mesothelioma patient and carer experience, to identify research areas of most importance.


Consensus Statement

Our consensus statement outlining a list of eleven research priorities for mesothelioma patient and carer experience research has now been published and can be found here.  

To develop these priorities this study comprised three stages:

  • Evidence synthesis: to explore what is already known and where the gaps in knowledge are.
  • Survey: mesothelioma patients, carers and professionals were invited to have their say about important topic areas for future research.
  • Ranking: exercises were undertaken by a project steering group, individuals with experience and expertise in the field of mesothelioma, to reach consensus regarding the most important research topics.
