Healthy Living after Cancer

Project Member(s): Haas, M.

Funding or Partner Organisation: National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC Partnership Projects)

Start year: 2014

Summary: The aim of this project is to evaluate the integration of an evidence-based, broad-reach (telephone-delivered) lifestyle intervention for cancer survivors, the Healthy Living after Cancer program, (HLaC) into the Helpline service delivery model offered by the Cancer Councils (CCs). (The Helplines currently provide information and support based on consumer-initiated calls, but not a structured program of proactive out-calls to support lifestyle changes among cancer survivors, as proposed here.) The overarching goal is for the service to be systematically integrated into survivorship care. Therefore, we have assembled a multidisciplinary group of Australian and international investigators and CC program and policy partners with world-leading expertise in lifestyle interventions in cancer survivors, cancer care, and translational research.
