Cancer: Life Affirming Survivorship support in Primary care (CLASP)

The current study aims to evaluate an online intervention offering lifestyle and wellbeing support for cancer survivors, called Renewed. The intervention has been developed using feedback from patients and healthcare professionals and provides modules for lifestyle (healthy eating; weight management; physical activity) and well-being (coping with emotional distress; reducing fatigue). A questionnaire generates suggestions for parts of the websites which may be most helpful to each individual based on participant answers; the questionnaire is accessible throughout the intervention to help users to make informed decisions about which parts they would like to try. The current project aims to evaluate the intervention for improving quality of life in cancer survivors, by conducting a randomised controlled trial.
