Quality Of Life Outcomes Following Treatment for Esophageal Cancer
In order to determine the impact of esophageal cancer and its treatment on patients' quality
of life over time, this study will prospectively follow a cohort of patients at specified
intervals, evaluating their physical symptoms, physical and social functioning and overall
quality of life. Medical and sociodemographic factors as well as health behaviors that might
be predictive of adaptation will be tested. This is a preliminary investigation and it is
hoped that we will be able to base future research questions on the results of this study.
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective
To prospectively evaluate the quality of life of patients before and after esophageal cancer resection.
Initial assessment → first post op visit → 6 and 12 months post surgery
