Reducing diagnostic delay in patients with pancreatic cancer

Project Supervisor/s

Suitable for Masters and PhD students.

Pancreatic cancer is difficult to diagnose and many patients describe diagnostic delay. However, the extent, causes and consequences of diagnostic delay in Australia are not well understood. This project will involve interviews with patients and their families, along with analyses of linked data, to explore this issue and devise potential methods to optimize the diagnostic journey for Australian patients.
