The Psychology Department from the University of Bath, together with young people receiving cancer care at the Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre (BHOC), created a 3-minute animation explaining cancer-related fatigue (CRF) and what it is like to live with it.

Cancer-related fatigue (CRF) in Teenage and Young Adult (TYA) patients and survivors is a significant, and under-reported problem. There is little research looking at how best to encourage young people to seek help with their fatigue, and little guidance on how health professionals and others can support them with this.

The video was launched earlier this April in order to support Teenage and Young Adult Cancer Awareness Month and will be followed by research activities on cancer-related fatigue.
