Researchers at Leeds Beckett University would like to interview people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes who are being treated for breast, bowel or prostate cancer, or have been in the past 3 years. This study aims to understand people’s experiences of managing diabetes during cancer treatments. Researchers want to identify ways to best support and help people to manage their diabetes whilst they undergo treatments for cancer.
If you decide to take part, you will talk to the research team about your experiences of managing diabetes during cancer treatments. They will ask you about what has been difficult, things that have helped you, and your views on how services could be improved to better support cancer patients who are also managing diabetes. The interview will last 45-60 minutes, but it depends how much you want to say. You can take a break if you’d like.
Your interview will be recorded (sound only, not video), to help the researchers remember what you have said.
The research team will arrange a date and time for the interview that suits you. You can also choose where the interview takes place. For example, you might want to do the interview over the telephone, or on Zoom, at your house in person, or some other way.
If you are interested and might like to take part, Mollie Price, the study research assistant, will be happy to answer your questions and, if you choose, arrange an interview. Email M.Price@leedsbeckett.ac.uk or call 0754 1365 856.
