Nurse-or Surgeon-led Follow-up After Rectal Cancer
Nurse-or Surgeon-led Follow-up After Rectal Cancer: a Randomised Trial.
Follow-up programmes consume a large amount of resources with less time for the surgeon to take on new patients. The aim of this randomised study was to compare patient satisfaction, resource utilisation, and medical safety in patients curatively operated for rectal cancer that were followed-up by a surgeon or a nurse.
