    Abstract

    Introduction: Providing people affected by cancer with appropriate information is widely recognised as an important aspect of supportive care. However, most information is provided at diagnosis and treatment, with a paucity beyond this time; unmet information needs and suboptimal communication with clinicians is often reported. To inform information provision strategies, there is a further need to identify information needs and experiences for people affected by cancer throughout the entire survivorship continuum.
