Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.Kent and Medway Cancer Network (KMCN) commissioned Explain to carryout on-street interviews using the cancer awareness measurement (CAM) tool. The survey took place in March 2010 within three Primary Care Trusts (PCTs); NHS Medway, NHS West Kent and NHS Eastern and Coastal Kent. The main objectives of the research were to better understand the level of public knowledge of cancer signs and symptoms and to help KMCN plan interventions and campaigns to raise awareness of risk factors. The results will also provide KMCN with information to benchmark against in the future.
Further information about the CAM may be found on the Cancer Research UK Cancer Awareness Measures (CAMs) web page.
