Abstract: This article describes how cancer patients at the end of life were involved in a study of the research priorities of people affected by cancer. The patients were involved as co-facilitators of focus groups with other patients and carers. The article discusses how the patients were recruited, trained and supported as co-researchers. The authors also draw out a series of recommendations for successful research collaborations with patients at the end of life.
