The research group focuses on patient-reported outcomes, that is, research on patients using self-report questionnaires. Using patient-reported outcome measures of health-related quality of life (HRQOL), psychosocial aspects, nutritional problems and symptoms are some of the aspects explored in patients with cancer of the upper gastrointestinal tract with a focus on oesophageal cancer patients in particular. The overall aim of the research is to identify modifiable risk factors or predictors for poor recovery after treatment in order to individualise supportive actions for improved quality of life among patients and their families.
