TCAT Achievements and Learning Report 2018

Section: Health and Social Care IntegrationType: News Item Date Published: 21st August 2018

The Transforming Care After Treatment User Involvement Achievements and Learning Report 2018 has been made available on our website.

A report has been written by ALLIANCE staff member and Transforming Care After Treatment (TCAT) User Involvement Manager Simon Malzer which covers the User Involvement theme of the programme and the achievements, barriers and challenges faced.

The five year duration of the TCAT programme is now reaching its final stages. Macmillan Cancer Support (this link will take you away from our website) have invested £5 million in the programme and 25 projects have been funded across the country as tests of change and innovation in services for people living with the consequences of cancer, whether as patients or carers.

Key to this innovation has been the inclusion in decision making at all levels throughout the programme of those same patients and carers. Their involvement has been an underpinning principle of the programme.

The TCAT User Involvement Achievements and Learning Report 2018 highlights the main achievements of this user involvement theme within the TCAT programme, reports on the methodologies adopted to bring about effective involvement within the relatively short timescale involved and reflects on key learning points emerging from the work over the past four years.

The report can be found below.
