COVID 19 SURVEY - Click below


In this study we aim to evaluate the impact of the COVID pandemic on gynaecological cancer patients and the patients’ attitude and experience in terms of modifications of their cancer care. 

Evaluating the depression and anxiety scores of gynaecological cancer patients during the pandemic is the secondary aim of the study.

Participation in this study is completely voluntary. If you decide not to participate there will not be any negative consequences. Please be aware that if you decide to participate, you may stop participating at any time and you may decide not to answer any specific questions. 

There will be no specific question about your private information such as name, surname or identity number etc. You may fill the survey either by an online survey that your doctors provide to you, or use the hard copy survey forms given to you. 

The researcher will maintain the confidentiality of the research records or

National Survey on Outpatient Communication Experiences.

All women who are attending a gynaecology outpatient appointment (for any reason) in The Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, St James’s Hospital, St. Vincent’s Hospital, Galway University Hospital, Cork University hospital, Waterford University hospital and Belfast City Hospital are invited to participate in this National survey.
