Projects

Patient and carer experiences with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma and myelodysplastic syndrome (2021)$18,017
Description
The project aims to assess the experience of patients with chronic haematologic malignancies, specifically relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and their carers. Although these conditions are treatable, they are not curable and the treatments can impose significant side effects. As they are incurable, patient quality of life and symptom burden and management are important concerns. This study will help us understand the patient experience in these areas, thereby leading to appropriate interventions and potentially better care.

Real-world outcomes and toxicities for patients with non-small cell lung cancer receiving immunotherapy (2021)$4,375
Description
The project seeks to develop a database of adverse events and outcomes for patients with non-small cell lung cancer who received PD-1/PD-L1 immunotherapy drugs in Southern Tasmania. As these drugs are increasingly in use, understanding their real-world impact, particularly for patients who would otherwise be trial-ineligible, is important. The goal of this project is to evaluate the incidence and severity of adverse events and important outcomes (survival, disease progression), and compare this based on key patient characteristics that affect trial eligibility (e.g. brain metastases, performance status). This will provide clinically relevant information about the patient experience on these therapies.

Screening for liver cancer in primary care: a systematic review of the evidence (2020 - 2021)$0
Description
The project seeks to review the evidence relating to screening for liver cancer in primary care. In particular, we will seek to identify barriers and facilitators to screening for both patients and providers. The goal of this project is to summarise the evidence in the field, which can provide a basis for customised interventions to improve screening uptake.
