What’s the title of the study?

Attitudes towards side-effects of chemotherapy and the effect of health inequalities on these

What’s the study about?

Treating cancer with chemotherapy can lead to having a lower white blood cell count. This can lead to a complication call neutropenic sepsis, which is a reaction to an infection. This is a serious condition which needs to be treated immediately. 

52 North Health is working with Macmillan Cancer Support to better understand health inequalities and attitudes towards neutropenic sepsis. They want to understand how well people who have had, or supported someone through chemotherapy are able to recognise neutropenic sepsis. They also want to assess whether people’s understanding is affected by social or economic factors.

Who’s organising it?

Name of project lead: Aislinn O'Farrell

Job title: Clinical Affairs Associate

Organisation: 52 North Health

Email address: aislinn@52north.health

Phone number: 07762327155

Who can take part?

Anyone who’s had chemotherapy, or supported someone through it, can take part.

You don’t need to have heard of neutropenic sepsis or know what it is.

Why do you want me to be involved?

Sharing your understanding and experiences will help to improve neutropenic sepsis care for people affected by cancer in the future.

What will you ask me to do?

The researchers would like you to fill in a short online survey. This should take about 5 minutes and will ask you questions about your experience of chemotherapy. The survey is anonymous.

How do I get involved?

You can fill in the online survey.

When’s the deadline?

6 August 2023
