The development of this website is part of a PhD research project
funded by the Medical Research Council. The information supplied on this website was developed by a research
team at the University of Manchester. The researchers are based at
the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work and at the School of
Computer Science. The main author of the information supplied here is
Julia Mueller, a PhD researcher at the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work.
We used several sources to inform the development of this website. We used medical reference works such as the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine (Longmore et al., 2014) and the Specialist Handbook Respiratory Medicine (Dilworth & Baldwin, 2001). We also gathered information from other trustworthy websites (such as NHS Choices, the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation, and Cancer Research UK).
Furthermore, this tool was reviewed by a Consultant Medical Oncologist and a General Practitioner. We also used guidelines commissioned by the UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (“Suspected cancer: Recognition and management of suspected cancer in children, young people and adults”, 2014).
