One of Pancreatic Cancer UK’s aims is to increase the amount of research into pancreatic cancer. We try to do this by funding research directly ourselves, lobbying Government and others to increase their funding and by pressing for policy changes to make research into the disease easier and more effective.

Effective research requires a good number of clinical trials to take place, so as to demonstrate whether a new treatment is truly effective for patients. We know that there are only a small number of clinical trials into pancreatic cancer open in the UK, and it can take a long time to recruit patients into those trials.

We understand that not all pancreatic cancer patients will be fit enough to take part in a trial, may not be suitable for other reasons and, of course, may not want to take part in a trial at all. However, we want to find out what we can do to make it easier for people to take part in trials if they want to. So we are keen to find out what experiences – if any – you have of clinical trials.

As such, we would be grateful if you would take a few minutes to complete our survey, to help us to better understand some of the issues involved.

The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete, depending upon how many detailed comments you leave.

The survey is completely anonymous if you wish it to be. However, if you would be prepared to talk to us in a little more detail about your views and experiences please leave your contact details at the end of the survey.

Thank you in advance for your time.
