National Cancer Survivorship Needs Assessment

There are estimated to be over 200,000 people living with or beyond a diagnosis of cancer in Ireland in 2019. Cancer treatments such as surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy may have a long-term impact on people’s health and result in day-to-day practical difficulties. Because of this, many people who have been through a cancer diagnosis may require ongoing medical and non-medical care and support. To address this, the National Cancer Strategy seeks to identify and assist in the needs of everyone who has been diagnosed with cancer in Ireland. By understanding the unmet needs of cancer patients, decisions can be made on how best to implement and deliver a model for survivorship care here in Ireland. As a first step, the NCRI examined all available research studies that have previously reported on the needs of adult cancer survivors in Ireland. The findings of this research are presented here
