If you agree to take part in this study, the study research coordinator/dietitian will contact you. We will gather information about you and your diagnosis, condition, treatment plan and nutrition. In addition, if you agree to take part in the study, you will be asked to do the following, up to a maximum of 6 months:
You will be approached by the dietitian either in person or over the phone to answer questions. We will ask about your weight loss, how much nutrition you have been receiving and whether you have had swallowing problems or unplanned hospital readmissions. These are standard questions that are usually asked by medical hospital/clinic staff.
When you are first introduced to the cancer clinic/hospital and at 2, 4 and 6 months, you will be asked to complete a short form (called Participant Generated Subjective Global Assessment PG SGA). It will ask 4 questions about your weight, food, symptoms and activities. This will take approximately 5 minutes. You may be asked to complete this form in person or over the phone.
Throughout the 6 month study period, you will be ask to tell researchers what you ate and drank over the last 24 hours (called a 24 hour dietary recall). You will asked over the phone or in person up to 9 times about your dietary intake.
When you are first introduced to the cancer clinic/hospital and at 6 months, you will also be asked to answer questions about the quality of care you have received (CANHELP Lite Questionnaire). This will take approximately 30 minutes.
You will be approached at 3 and 6 months for a quick update on your health status. This will take approximately 5 minutes.
