The Asbestos Narratives: A Report into the Real Impact of an Asbestos-related Diagnosis

This project was conducted by Southern Cross University to understand the social, psychological and economic impacts of asbestos-related disease. The researcher provides new insights and evidence into the social, psychological and economic impacts of asbestos-related disease in this report. It draws together the contribution of the project’s partner organisations and the experiences of over sixty men and women who have been affected by asbestos exposure in some way. While historically asbestos-related disease research has predominantly focused on men, this research also focused on women who have been diagnosed with asbestos-related disease, and on women as carers, providing new and informative insights into how this debilitating disease impacts and affects women. 

A copy of the report can be downloaded from this page on the Southern Cross University's website. It's an excellent report and well worth the read.
