Can you help with evaluation of booklet about treating breast cancer?

In the hope of increasing accessibility to a wider range of readers, breast cancer support charity Breast Cancer Care has produced some materials about treating breast cancer. This material contains much less detail than our traditional patient information booklet on the subject and is aimed at a lower reading age.We surveyed a range of potential users during the development, and are now seeking volunteers to do some evaluation of the first full iteration.
If you would be willing to take part – either as an individual or with a group of patients, for example – we would be most grateful. The evaluation involves looking at the booket, followed by the completion of a short paper or online survey: all booklets and  questionnaires will be supplied. If you’d like to help, please email with ‘Treating breast cancer evaluation’ in the subject line.
