The Iris Cancer Partnership’s vision is:

“Collaborating to provide effective oncology massage therapy across Scotland”

Our mission is:

“To support the delivery of massage services for anyone diagnosed with cancer and to develop an oncology massage curriculum, oncology massage services, and a research capability under a single integrated strategy”

Meeting demand, through the provision of massage services, by:

  1. Delivering the services of specially trained massage therapists to people diagnosed with cancer either directly or in co-operation with other cancer organizations, charities, and NHS services.
  2. Raising people’s awareness about cancers with updated information about health issues as well as tips to live with cancer or stay physically and mentally healthy.
  3. Continuously improve, through research and surveys, by:
  • Conducting surveys with people diagnosed with cancer to identify their needs and changing patterns of needs in terms of different therapy approaches
  • Conducting surveys with massage therapists to understand how best to attract therapists to the courses and support their continuing work
  • Undertaking various approaches to evaluation and research with people diagnosed with cancer, massage therapists, and other relevant stakeholders to ensure the approaches to education and services remain current and relevant
