Health Studies (Surveys)
At War On Cancer we encourage and support research on cancer. Your experiences can help others. Health studies consist of specific surveys with a series of questions that you can choose to answer. If you agree to opt in to this service, War On Cancer may process your personal data to check your eligibility for the health study. If eligible, you will be asked to complete surveys and War On Cancer will share aggregated and/or pseudonymised data (not your identity) with our partners, such as pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, universities and other educational institutions, for specific health studies.
This service is provided, free of charge, only if you have given your consent to participate in it. By opting in to and participating in a study, sharing information such as symptoms experienced during treatment and quality of life experienced after treatment, you'll be able to improve the future for others affected by cancer.
