Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

This survey was carried out in the Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) of Barnsley, Bassetlaw, Doncaster and Sheffield using the nationally validated Cancer Awareness Measure (CAM). The aim was to provide a baseline assessment of cancer awareness amongst adults living in the areas served by these four PCTs. They also aim to highlight differences in awareness by age, gender and socio-economic factors.

A Special Licence access version of this study is available from the UK Data Archive under SN 6647. This study includes all the variables in the End User Licence (EUL) version but with the addition of a postcode variable and three detailed string variables covering ethnicity, language spoken and educational qualifications.
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
