Impact Summary for the General Public

Bangor University staff (Neal & Wilkinson) are core members of a collaboration whose research since 2003 has had significant policy relevance and impact in the field of primary care oncology. Impact has been made in three areas: The role of primary care in the earlier diagnosis of symptomatic cancer; for example by determining the predictive value of symptoms and translating this into Risk Assessment Tools for clinical practice The contribution of primary care to cancer follow-up and the management of survivorship; for example by changing practice by illuminating poor care in prostate cancer Empowering patients through communication of new cancer-related science in primary care; for example by developing core messages for use in communication about HPV.
