Abstract

Review question
The review objectives are:
To identify, evaluate and synthesise qualitative evidence that has explored the perspectives of people living
with and beyond cancer regarding self-management.
To utilise this data to identify, explore and explain the potential barriers and facilitators to self-management in
people living with and beyond cancer.

Condition or domain being studied:
Engagement (or lack of) in self-management practices/behaviours, support and resources in adults (≥18) with any diagnosis of cancer who have completed treatment for cancer.
Whilst there is no universal definition of self-management, in cancer survivorship, it has been defined as “awareness and active participation by the person in their recovery, recuperation, rehabilitation, to minimise the consequences of treatment, promote survival, health and wellbeing” (DH, Macmillan Cancer Support, NHS Improvement, 2013). This definition will be used for the purposes of this review.

Additional Information:Whilst the review itself does not have any direct sponsoring or financing, it is being undertaken as part of a wider PhD project that is funded by Macmillan Cancer Support (Grant ID: 5183969) and the University of Lincoln.
