Special Issue "Clinical Outcomes and Follow-Up Care in Gynecological Cancers"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2023) | Viewed by 3630
Interests: gynecological cancer survivorship and follow-up
Over the past decade, there has been increasing focus on cancer survivorship and the impact that this may have on patient outcomes. The incidence of gynaecological cancers is changing in many countries and as a result many changes have been proposed for patient follow-up, with a greater emphasis on tailoring follow-up schemes and schedules to patients’ needs. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the introduction of virtual follow-up schemes in many countries, for example, telephone or patient-initiated follow-up. Clinical trials to date have mainly focused on the role of such schemes in uterine cancer, although the impact on long-term survival has yet to be determined. In this Special Issue on ‘Clinical Outcomes and Follow-Up Care in Gynecological Cancers’, we aim to cover all aspects of gynaecological cancer follow-up, including patient experiences, clinical outcomes and the impact on healthcare providers. We welcome articles from research to clinical applications.
