Reducing lifestyle associated cancer risk in people attending family history clinics - formative research
Funded by University of Dundee.
Collaboration with University of Dundee.
This collaborative, multi-disciplinary, project aimed to assess modifiable health behaviours associated with increased risk of breast/colorectal cancer and to identify promising approaches to the design and uptake of interventions amongst attendees of family history clinics (ie. people with raised genetic risk of particular cancers). As part of the wider study we conducted qualitative research interviews with people who had been referred to NHS family history clinics to explore their awareness of and attitudes towards addressing lifestyle factors to reduce cancer risk.
