Building on our previous research
We are investigating the relationship between women with ovarian cancer who have been misdiagnosed, and shopping for healthcare products.
Our previous survey study showed that the women with ovarian cancer who self-medicate using over-the-counter products were seven times more likely to wait longer than a year for an accurate diagnosis, if their decision to self-medicate was made due to advice from a GP rather than independently.
If Tesco Clubcard data confirms the findings from our survey study it would provide evidence to invest in the development of guidelines and diagnostic tools for doctors, healthcare professionals and pharmacists concerning self-medication.
