Brief Summary:

This is a prospective, multi-centred cohort study whereby the EUNASS Study questionnaire will be administered electronically to identify needs of melanoma survivors, the extent to which these needs are being met, and identify areas which have the greatest need for development. It will also evaluate behaviour in relation to sun protection and skin self-examination (SSE). It will be a self-completed questionnaire.

Qualitative work using semi-structured interviews will explore the needs of melanoma survivors in greater depth, will present examples of potential interventions to improve SSE and explore factors that determine the likelihood of engaging in an intervention which can address unmet needs, such as improving SSE. Taken together, the data will provide the evidence base to inform the development of an intervention to improve SSE, which can subsequently be tested in secondary care services.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
The EUNASS Study Questionnaire is an electronic questionnaire (using the Qualtrics programme) designed to assess management after diagnosis of melanoma and during follow-up, health status, fear of melanoma recurrence, melanoma-specific supportive care needs, sun protection behaviour, views and habits about SSE and standard socio-demographic details.
Other: Questionnaire

A qualitative researcher will undertake 25-30 semi-structured interviews with participants who have volunteered their contact details in the final section of the EUNASS Study Questionnaire. A purposive sampling approach will be taken for participant recruitment to this part of the study.
Other: Questionnaire

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mixed methods: analysis of a) Patient questionnaire responses and b) Semi-structured interviews [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Mixed methods analysis - quantitative and qualitative results
