If you’ve been around Lacuna Loft for any length of time, you know how we love pointing you towards new tools and new research.  Today we’re letting you in on an easy and very impactful research opportunity with Fred Hutch researchers!

Many people living with cancer experience symptoms – including pain – which can last for years after cancer treatment. The best, and often only, way to assess post-treatment symptoms in survivors is by using patient-reported outcomes (PROs). PROs are questionnaire-based measures that ask patients directly about their symptoms and feelings. In this study we aim to develop PROs that are tailored to, and hence potentially meaningful for, individual patients. We are looking for adult cancer survivors with pain in the US to complete two surveys over one week.
