Objectives: 1. Determine the surveillance practice patterns following curative resection of colorectal cancer 2. Identify patient characteristics related to eligibility for treatment after the detection of a colorectal cancer recurrence

Study summary:

A survey related to surveillance practice patterns following curative resection of colorectal cancer patients will be administered to eligible providers for them to complete. The survey collects basic information related to a providers' role in in colorectal care in addition to their perspective on patient characteristics that may directly influence a patients' ability to receive treatment for a recurrent colorectal cancer. The surveys may be self-administered and completed anonymously, either in a hard copy or electronic formats. They may also be administered by the research personnel in a group setting for paper or electronic surveying. The surveys may be sent to providers as in PDF form for respondents to print and complete, handed out in person, emailed as a qualtrics study or electronically administered at a regularly occurring conference for colorectal cancer physicians. In the case the survey is electronically administered in a group setting, audience response equipment will be used. Individual data will be collected using electronic response devices. No personally identifying information will be collected. Participants will not be identifiable using data collected in these group settings. If the form is handed out in person, it will be given out and collected using a blank envelope to eliminate any way of identifying the provider completing it. If respondents print and complete paper forms they will be ask to return them with no identifying information. Participants will be asked to place the deidentified survey in a sealed envelope and return through mail or in a drop-box placed in a common location, all envelopes returned to the study staff in person will be collected together and opened in aggregate. Electronically administered questionnaires, using audience response or a qualtrics survey, will have no identifying information.
