13th Behavioural Research in Cancer Control Conference

Day 1 Highlights


'Achieving cancer control in a complex communication environment' 

The communication environment around cancer-related decisions is complex in many ways. Information engagement reflects the use of a great and growing range of old and new media as well as interpersonal sources; information engagement varies across decision stages from prevention to screening to treatment to surviving. In addition, engagement style can vary from passively scanning information during routine media use to actively seeking information from media or from clinicians and social networks. This presentation will describe evidence for how engagement varies across these three dimensions of sources, stages and styles in the US population; it will then present some evidence about the effects of information engagement on behaviour. Finally, it will consider the implications of this research program for how to assure that needed information is diffused in such a complex communication environment.  

Professor Robert C Hornik
