How has living through the COVID-19 pandemic as a person diagnosed with cancer affected you? How are you coping? What kinds of precautions have you been taking? How has it impacted your cancer care?
WE WANT TO KNOW!!
The Canadian Cancer Trials Group (CCTG) has launched a patient-centred observational study called: CCTG SC.27: Living With Cancer in the Time of COVID-19: A Cohort Study of the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Cancer Patients During Treatment and Survivors. The aim of this study is to examine the emotional and physical consequences of living with cancer during this pandemic and the impact it may have on your quality of life and changes in your cancer care and follow-up.
While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have an unprecedented global impact, the health risks, burdens and outcomes are not the same for everyone. Cancer patients and survivors are one example of a vulnerable populatio where the impact of the pandemic deserves greater attention.
If you are an adult diagnosed with cancer within the last 10 years and are interested in reading more about the study and the opportunity to participate, please follow this link: Covid19LivingwithCancer.ca
