Medical Health News, Nursing Times, Medical Xpress: Study to test if new talking therapy can help cancer survivors cope
Psychology 30 November 2017
The goal of the new £2.5 million project is to design and test a new kind of talking therapy for patients. Professor Ridge will co-lead on research designed to shape the randomised control trial, including looking at how to make the talking therapy approach more useful to a culturally diverse population; determining details of the talking therapy approach taken in the trial, and optimising the talking therapy approach for the NHS following the trial.
The 5-year project, which has been supported by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), is to be carried out by a consortium of researchers including the University of Westminster, Queen Mary University of London, Barts Health NHS Trust, King's College London and others.
