MYCaW (Measure Yourself Concerns and Wellbeing)
Developed by Dr Charlotte Paterson at the University of Bristol, MYCaW is a validated, person-centred outcome measure, designed specifically for the evaluation of cancer support services.
The MYCaW questionnaire measures the impact of cancer support services on the severity of each client’s cancer-related concerns and wellbeing. Penny Brohn has helped to develop MYCaW over many years, including the accompanying qualitative coding guidelines.
PAM – the Patient Activation Measure
The Patient Activation Measure – or PAM for short – is an internationally-used and validated patient questionnaire, which measures the level of activation. This is the skills, knowledge and confidence that a person has to manage their own health.
We also use bespoke Patient Reported Experience Measures (PREMs) and Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) tailored to each of our services.
