Marie Ennis-O’Connor‘s insight:

This is a fascinating and growing area of research and one that I am excited to be part of. An increasing number of cancer survivors are using online media to engage in health-related social networking not only as a channel for personal thoughts and feelings, but also as a forum for on-going discussion and information sharing. Social media in this way provides healthcare researchers and practitioners with a framework for a richer understanding of the lived experience of cancer survivorship, and how it evolves over time and at key life stages.
