Resolve: Improving health status and symptom experience for people living with advanced cancer content
In Yorkshire, over 14,000 people die from advanced cancer each year, a number expected to rise up to 17,000 by 2030.
In the weeks or months before they die, people with advanced cancer often experience pain, breathlessness, or tiredness/exhaustion, which reduce the quality of their remaining life.
This programme aims to improve these symptoms and the health of Yorkshire patients living with advanced cancer and help to support their families.
This will be achieved through early identification of those who need help, regularly assessing and monitoring symptoms and providing better management for the most difficult symptoms.
