Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

This survey was carried out across Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) in North East London using the nationally validated Cancer Awareness Measure (CAM) tool to measure the levels of cancer awareness in the local populations.

Data obtained using systematic probability sampling were used to recruit a population sample, appropriately weighted to enable analysis by ethnic group. The survey data were obtained through using home-based face-to-face interviews. The results provide a baseline of current awareness, which will enable targeting of local interventions and evaluation of future policy initiatives aimed at improving cancer awareness in the area.

The CAM tool was developed by Cancer Research UK and its partners to facilitate accurate and sensitive surveillance of public awareness of cancer over time, identify information needs and monitor the impact of campaigns promoting awareness and early presentation. It is now being used to establish cancer awareness levels more locally across the country. Further information about the CAM may be found on the Cancer Research UK Cancer Awareness Measures web page.

Users should note that the Special Licence version of this study, including postcode-level information, but with more restrictive access conditions, is held under SN 6681.

Main Topics:
The CAM questionnaire addressed the following topics:
  • public awareness of cancer symptoms
  • public knowledge of cancer risk factors
  • reasons for patient delay before contacting doctor
  • public knowledge of common cancer types in men and women
  • public awareness of cancer screening programmes
  • demographic variables
