Priorities for research to improve patient experiences of mesothelioma

The Mesothelioma UK Research Centre (MURC) has launched its work in setting research priorities to improve patient and carer/family experiences.

The priorities are the result of a systematic research exercise to address this important research gap, as without establishing research priorities there is a risk future services or treatments will not meet the needs of people living with mesothelioma and their families.

The MURC’s research priorities statement lists the 11 research priorities that were identified. It is anticipated that the priorities will Influence the research agenda and feed through to policy and practice and improve outcomes for mesothelioma patients and their carers/families.
