    Putting research into action

    This poster offers a summary of a user involvement research project carried out by the Community Health and Learning Foundation on behalf of UK charity Breast Cancer Care.

    Breast Cancer Care produces a wide range of patient information in multimedia formats for people facing breast cancer.

    The project looked at how well people with lower levels of health literacy understood specific pieces of Breast Cancer Care breast awareness information.

    It made a number of detailed recommendations for improvements to ensure Breast Cancer Care’s important breast awareness messages are presented in an accessible way for as wide an audience as possible.

    The poster explains the rationale for commissioning the research, the methodology and it talks about how Breast Cancer Care made both immediate changes to patient information based on the findings, and is continuing to use key learning from the research in its current work.
