The ENABLE study protocol: Understanding and characterising the value and role of self‐management support for people living with cancer that is treatable but not curable
Objective
Attention is turning to the needs of people living with treatable but incurable cancer, a group with complex needs, living with uncertainty over time. More research is needed to understand how this group self‐manage the impact of cancer to strengthen the evidence base for interventions. This study aims to understand the value and outcomes of self‐management support for people living with treatable but incurable cancer.

Methods
Qualitative longitudinal methods will examine how support needs change over time in relation to self‐management and unpredictable disease trajectories. Thirty patients and 30 carers will be recruited from two hospitals, each participating in three interviews over 1 year. Patients will be purposively sampled according to age, gender, cancer type and anticipated survival. Carers will be recruited via nomination by patients but interviewed separately. One‐off interviews will be conducted with 20 healthcare professionals, providing data from multiple perspectives. Based on interview findings, a modified Delphi process will map areas of consensus and disparity regarding conceptualisations and outcomes of self‐management support.

Conclusion
The key output will be practice recommendations in relation to self‐management support, producing evidence to inform service innovation for those living with treatable but incurable cancer.
