Research Involvement Network opportunity: Represent people affected by pancreatic cancer in the Integrative Cancer Epidemiology Programme

The University of Bristol have been funded by Cancer Research UK to study cancer prevention for the next 5 years.

This role will include:
Advising the research team by sharing your viewpoints and concerns of patients, carers and members of the public affected by cancer. This will help the programme: decide which research questions are of greatest importance to patients and the public; develop measures to prevent and treat cancer; publicize the findings so patients and the public can benefit from them; and more.

You will be fully supported by the Programme PPI specialists who will facilitate group discussions and other feedback mechanisms to ensure your views are captured and communicated effectively.
