Recovery and self-management support following primary cancer treatment
NHS England is not responsible for content on external websites.
To explain the framework, they drew on data from two UK studies by Wright et al (2006) and Corner et al (2007). They concluded from their study that cancer survivors may struggle to self-manage following primary treatment where confidence is low, or support is lacking. Low confidence may be a significant barrier to accessing support. The study recommends that, support to bolster self-confidence is an important aspect of recovery alongside physical and psychosocial problems in the context of changing health care and cancer follow-up.
