Improving patient experience of being given a mesothelioma diagnosis

Have you or a member of your family been diagnosed with mesothelioma in the last three to twelve months?

Are you interested in sharing your experience of receiving the diagnosis?

RADIO MESO is a study, run by Sheffield University and funded by Mesothelioma UK, which aims to look at ways healthcare professionals could improve the diagnosis experience for patients.

What happens during the study?

The study will explore what it is like to receive a diagnosis of mesothelioma. Researchers will speak directly to patients and their carers, usually on the telephone, and ask questions about their experience of being told they have mesothelioma. The researchers will look at what people think is done well and what could be improved.

Why is RADIO MESO being conducted?

We know that receiving a diagnosis of mesothelioma can be very distressing and challenging. The interviews will be used to make recommendations about how services can improve how they communicate a mesothelioma diagnosis

Who can take part in RADIO MESO?

If you or someone in your family has recently received a diagnosis of mesothelioma (within the last three to twelve months), you may be able to take part in this research.

What do I do if I am interested in taking part?

If you are interested in taking part, please contact the Mesothelioma Helpline on 0800 169 2409 or email mesothelioma.uk@uhl-tr.nhs.uk. They will discuss the project in more detail and pass your details on to the researchers.
