Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

As part of the wider cancer strategy, the NHS Cancer Action Team funded the Merseyside and Cheshire Cancer Network (MCCN) to survey levels of cancer awareness in the local population. The MCCN subsequently commissioned the University of Liverpool to carry out this work.

The aims of the survey were to contribute to the national picture of levels of cancer awareness and generate evidence to support MCCN strategies for identifying and addressing inequalities across the network. The survey used the nationally validated Cancer Awareness Measure (CAM) which has been developed by a Cancer Research UK team to assess awareness of cancer amongst the general population.

Respondents were identified from a random sample of 5,250 residents accessed through the edited versions on the Electoral Rolls for the MCCN region. The MCCN region includes seven Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) (Liverpool PCT, Warrington PCT, Wirral PCT, Halton and St Helens PCT, Knowsley PCT, Sefton PCT, Western Cheshire PCT).
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
