WHAT IS PROPATIENT?

PROpatient is a research project that aims to test whether symptom-monitoring and care-coordination can improve the quality of life of people with pancreatic, oesophageal or stomach cancers.

People with pancreatic, oesophageal and stomach cancer may have symptoms that decrease their quality of life.

 

We think that patient care can be improved through the combination of:

  • Patients regularly completing questionnaires to report their symptoms

  • Review of these questionnaires by a PROpatient nurse who will then coordinate the patient’s care and refer them to the appropriate health professional
