Patients’ and carers’ preferences regarding the role of rehabilitation following esophagectomy: a qualitative study

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

    Abstract

    : Esophagectomy with preoperative chemotherapy with/without radiotherapy carries significant morbidity, and quality of life is often significantly
    reduced postoperatively for a prolonged period of time. Better preparation of
    patients for treatment might reduce treatment-related morbidity. However, it
    is not known about patients’ preferences regarding rehabilitation in this setting. We have undertaken a qualitative study to explore the views and needs
    of patients and their carers regarding perioperative and postoperative rehabilitation following esophagectomy.
