Diving With or After Cancer

Cancer survival in the UK has doubled in the last 40 years, and the average number of survival years has also increased.  As a result, more and more people are resuming their work, sport, and daily lives following treatment/surgery for cancer.  As part of our continuing Health of Divers project, we would like to gain a better insight into cancer and diving.

Research shows that physical activity may have beneficial effects for several aspects of cancer survivorship, and at DDRC Healthcare we would like to try and find out a little more about how divers who have had, or currently have, cancer view the sport of diving. Has diving helped in your recovery? Have you continued to dive? Did you give up diving due to cancer? There is so much to find out.

Cancer and Diving Research Survey

We would appreciate it very much if you could take a little time and answer our anonymous questionnaire to the best of your ability. As in all our surveys, all the information you give us will be completely untraceable to you, so we would value your participation in this project.

This project promises to be a very valuable contribution to diving research, and we hope it will enable us to gain a better understanding regarding this subject. There is a maximum of 40 questions in this survey, but you will not have to answer them all.  The survey should only take about 4 to 5 minutes to complete. Please follow the on-line instructions to the end.

Many thanks for your time and input.

It will be some months before the data is processed and published. We will upload a summary of the research findings to our website as soon as they are available.
