Experiences chronic of bowel symptoms after pelvic radiotherapy.

Posted 01 Nov 2021 at 11:20

COLO-SPIRIT (Colorectal Symptoms after Pelvic Radiotherapy) is a new study led by Newcastle University’s Centre for Cancer. We will be interviewing patients and health professionals to learn about experiences chronic of bowel symptoms after pelvic radiotherapy.  

As part of this study, we are looking for 30 people from a variety of backgrounds who have experienced chronic bowel symptoms after pelvic radiotherapy and who would be willing to take part in an interview and complete a short questionnaire.  

Interviews are expected to last 60-90 minutes and the questionnaire is expected to take around 10 minutes to complete.

Participants will receive a £25 shopping voucher to thank them for taking part.  

Reasonable travel expenses incurred can be reimbursed against receipts.  

We are looking for: 

  • men and women from a variety of backgrounds and with a variety of cancer experiences, 
  • who have received radiotherapy to their pelvis 6 months or more in the past and 
  • who have experience of bowel symptoms following their treatment. 

This study forms part of a larger piece of research that aims to better understand the experiences of symptoms and treatment and the likely number of people affected now and in future. This research will help pave the way for better support services and the development of new treatment options.  

If you would like to get involved or would simply like more information, please send an email to Adam at colospirit@ncl.ac.uk  

Please note that, because we want to interview people from a variety of backgrounds, it may be that not everyone who expresses an interest in taking part will be called for interview.
