The overall aim with this study is to get a deeper understanding of the potential benefits with a health platform for patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer.
Our main hypotheses are that patients who are active on a health platform will:
- Have an improved self-efficacy for coping as measured by CBI-B?
- Increase postoperative morbidity.
All patients diagnosed or treated for colorectal cancer within the last year at the including hospitals will be possible to include in the study. Patients that find the forum through the internet can also be included, regardless of treating hospital.
Inability to give informed consent or speaking and reading the Swedish language. No possibility to use a health platform.
Aiming at including 400 patients.
