Insight Survey

Clinical trials are research studies, in which people volunteer to try new treatments or tests as a way to stop, find, treat or look after various medical problems. Only a small percentage of patients with cancer are involved in clinical trials in New Zealand at present, well below the rates of other countries.

We are asking patients and doctors from across New Zealand to give us their opinion, so we can develop a better understanding of how New Zealanders feel about clinical trials.

If you would like to have your say, please complete the following anonymous survey: Click Here!

Every response helps us to make a change!


You Are Not Alone! Read the HAPPY, sad, ENCOURAGING, heartbreaking, HOPEFUL stories and experience shared by patients, families, friends touched by Cancer. 


 I Want to Read Human Stories of Cancer


Every day 60 New Zealanders will hear the words “I am sorry you have cancer”. 

At Cancer Society, we know how a cancer diagnosis can affect every aspect of your life and we are here to help you through.

Cancer Society can help you get to your medical appointments, or provide accommodation if you live far away from hospital. Our specialist nurses can support you through your treatment and answer any questions you have – big or small.

And if you just want to talk and share your experience – we are here to listen.

No one should face cancer alone… with Cancer Society, you don’t have to!
