These assessment tools have almost the same contents. The CARES has four forms; a long form in a clinical or research version and a short form in a clinical or research version. What differentiates the long form and short forms are the number of items. The long form has items and the short-form 59, although not all items apply to every person who completes it. For example there are subsections for people in significant relationships, those who are dating, those on chemotherapy, radiation therapy and sexually active as examples of situations where subsections would apply or not. If these sections do not apply, the tool becomes shorter. Clearly, this could be used in research work as well depending on the nature of the research questions being addressed. These tools provide a way to document the number, type and severity of difficulties that an individual may be facing as a result of the cancer diagnosis.

The generosity of fundraisers will be enormously appreciated by those making their way to Portsmouth for cancer treatment.
This was done because it was felt to be important to help stop an unfairness where cancer patients going to hospital in Southampton benefitted from a charity minibus service, but people visiting hospital in Portsmouth did not. The NHS is unable to support funding for patient travel unless medically required. However the charity wanted this to be confidential as they were still looking for alternative funding support.
The NHS, both locally and nationally, must deliver major changes to patient services in the coming years, and we must always keep in mind the essential need for people to be able to access the care that the NHS provides.

Dating after tongue cancer BY Rita Avila Not too long ago, one of my good friends got hitched and, over a year later, got married to the man of her dreams.
