Geriatric Oncology Surgical Assessment and Functional rEcovery After Surgery

Description

Multicenter, international, prospective, observational study, designed to evaluate the postoperative results in terms of quality of life and functional recovery of elderly patients after major cancer surgery. The global expected duration of the study is 3 years, during which cancer patients over 70 years old undergoing major surgery will be evaluated before and after the surgical intervention, at 30 days, 3- and 6-months follow-up. The study is non-for-profit. Given the observational nature of the study, the original treatment plan, as designed by each individual recruiting centre, will not be altered or affected by the study inclusion. Inclusion in the study does not imply any deviation from the current standard of practice, and no change is expected to the perioperative treatment at any point. Patients will be only asked to complete simple screening/assessment tests.
