    People with cancer are being asked to be part of a study aiming to improve their care - outside a hospice

    People with cancer are being asked to be part of a study aiming to improve their care - outside a hospice


    Post-doctoral research fellow Dr Jessica Young says 78 per cent of people who die of cancer use hospice services at some stage in their illness.

    Her research aims to uncover how those who don't, can be better supported ... which she says is a growing issue.

    She says with an ageing population there'll be more people in this situation, so we need to find out how they can be supported if hospice services aren't available.

    Anyone keen to participate can get in touch through Victoria University of Wellington.
