Research | Lung Cancer Nursing UK Skip to main content


Lung Cancer Nursing UK (LCNUK) is keen to stimulate the quantity and quality of all aspects of audit and research related to the diagnosis, treatment and management of lung cancer and mesothelioma.  We are also keen to support research in service development and delivery.

LCNUK is keen to develop research activity that will help improve care and services within lung cancer and also develop the LCNUK's research capacity.   In addition, we hope to facilitate collaboration and dialogue between clinical and academic colleagues and bring together experienced researchers and nurse specialists with a declared interest in lung cancer and research.

Dr Catherine Henshall, NiHR Associate Director of Nursing, Reader, Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at Oxford Brookes University is the chair of LCNUK research activities and, supported by a research subgroup, works on the development of programmes by LCNUK to facilitate quality research by LCNUK members through the provision of educational programmes, awards and grants.
