Tenovus project shortlisted for Impact Award

Tenovus bus - GIS research project

Professor Gary Higg's research project ' Improving mobile cancer services using open source spatial technologies' has been shortlisted for a University Impact Award.

Led by Prof Higgs, the GIS Research Group have worked with Tenovus Cancer Care to improve their mobile cancer services. Tools and detailed GIS models developed by the group will enable Tenovus to examine spatial inequalities in access to services and optimise the location and delivery of mobile health services.

This will enable Tenovus to treat patients closer to home, extend the reach of services, and help reduce the stress, anxiety and fatigue to the patient.
