Military Mesothelioma Experience Study

The School of Nursing and Midwifery at the University of Sheffield is conducting some research to explore the experiences of British Armed Forces personnel/ veterans with mesothelioma and their family members. The MIMES research study is being conducted as part of the Mesothelioma UK – Supporting our Armed Forces initiative which aims to raise awareness of the disease and establish a comprehensive, shared approach to providing mesothelioma information and support for armed forces personnel and veterans.

The incidence of mesothelioma amongst UK military personnel is not known. It is important to understand more about the patient experience mesothelioma amongst British armed forces personnel/veterans. This will help healthcare professionals to understand how to better meet the needs of those at risk of developing the disease, and those newly diagnosed.

This research will engage with health professionals and support agencies to identify how services can best meet the health and support needs of these patients and their families.
