Are you a parent of a child previously treated for cancer? Do you feel like you need support in order to feel better? We in the U-CARE group at Uppsala University are currently working on a research project in which parents are invited to participate in a feasibility study of a web-based self-help programme. We have developed the programme together with parents of children previously treated for cancer. We among other things investigate whether parents want to use the programme and whether they find it helpful. Professor Louise von Essen is the principal investigator and the project is supported by the Swedish Cancer Society, the Swedish Research Council and the Swedish Childhood Cancer Fund.

If you are interested in participating or would like to know more, visit www.u-care.se/Engage, send an email to foraldrar@kbh.uu.se or call us at 018-471 65 77. Register to the project at www.u-care.se/Engage, recruitment code: [UCR1]. Please note that you can participate in the project only if you understand written Swedish.

The U-CARE-Portal

If you are interested in conducting research over the internet, it is possible to use the U-CARE-portal. The Portal is an internet-based platform that has been developed within the interdisciplinary research programme U-CARE. Via the Portal, both experimental and observational studies can be performed. For example, interventions such as self-help programmes can be delivered and evaluated here.
