Pathos study

Protocol summary:

With the emergence of non-operative approaches in the treatment of rectal cancer, there is an increased interest to comprehend patients’ decision-making process when choosing a particular treatment.
This pilot study seeks to provide information to patients regarding present available treatment options and their related side effects.
Additionally, for those patients that are interested in participating, we are proposing to explore their treatment preferences and tradeoffs for toxicities in order to have a better understanding of socio-demographic factors related to their decision. This study does not have an impact on patient’s actual treatments as it consists of two online questionnaires.
