MORE patient feedback needed to improve services

The MORE Survey has now closed for recruitment. Thank you to all who have participated. The vital tasks of providing validation for all surveys and data analysis are the next steps.

About the MORE Survey

Mesothelioma UK invited mesothelioma patients to have the opportunity to describe their experience of investigations, treatment and care.

The MORE survey (Mesothelioma Outcomes, Research and Experience) will enable Mesothelioma UK to inform healthcare providers about what is being done well, what could be improved and hopefully where there are variations in treatment and care. It will also help us to develop our services to complement those of the NHS and prioritise what kinds of support services we should be offering.

The survey consists of three sections – patient experience of care, quality of life and clinical information. It is completely confidential and will be anonymised.

Based on the feedback we receive, we will produce recommendations and circulate them to the wider mesothelioma community and healthcare providers.
