Abstract

Flourish (“the intervention”) is based on the Gloucestershire Artlift project but is targeted at participants who are living with or beyond cancer. It is a joint programme between Gloucestershire Artlift and Macmillan Cancer Support. Flourish is a referral scheme that aims to improve the health and wellbeing of patients through an 8-week arts course. Courses in a variety of arts are being offered on a limited, pilot basis to understand their efficacy in this particular patient group. Participants are recruited via GP and clinical referral, through targeted promotion in clinical settings and the offering of “taster sessions” for interested patients. The inclusion criteria for referral included people who have either a current or past diagnosis of cancer for the purposes of improving ability to self-manage consequences of treatment and late effects
