Social and Behavioural Research

Since 1990, with the growing need to address the prevention of cancer the Society has supported Social and Behavioural Research at Otago University, Dunedin. Funding of $392,500 per annum is committed to The Cancer Society Social and Behavioural Research Unit at Otago University. The Unit currently works across all health promotion areas to:

  • build up and maintain the evidence base.
  • evaluate health promotion programmes.
  • support post graduate students into the field.

More recently the Unit has also commenced working with Support Services to develop a body of evidence on psychosocial/spiritual research focusing on the needs of cancer survivors.

It is with much pleasure that the Cancer Society Social & Behavioural Research Unit presents its 2017 Annual Report.
