Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

In November 2009, the Anglia Cancer Network commissioned DJS Research to carry out a survey using the Cancer Awareness Measure (CAM) tool to measure the levels of cancer awareness in the local populations. The survey was carried out in 32 urban and rural locations across Primary Care Trust (PCT) regions covered by the Anglia Cancer Network: Peterborough, Bedfordshire, Suffolk, Great Yarmouth and Waveney, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire. The aim of the survey was to provide a baseline assessment of cancer awareness for the Anglia populations covered by the six PCTs.

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, containing postcode-level information, with more restrictive access conditions, is held under SN 6687.
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
