Recapture Life trial podcast with Rachael Babin and Ursula Sansom-Daly

The ‘Recapture Life’ trial is a recently published large randomised control trial examining the efficacy of a new online psychological support program for adolescent and young adult cancer survivors. The data revealed some very interesting implications for ‘who’ online support may work best for, and ‘when’ this support is best delivered.
