Impact of COVID-19 on the management of Oesophagogastric Cancers

To gather views from surgeons treating oesophageal and gastric cancer on the management strategies for the treatment of non-metastatic oesophagogastric cancers in view of the challenges faced with the current COVID 19 pandemic.
Survey practising surgeons managing patients oesophageal and gastric cancers. An Online survey will be distributed via social media to international bodies with relevant members who treat oesophageal and gastric cancers such as OGAA, Pansurg, COVIDsurg, AUGIS, GASTROS, ESDE, ISDE and IGCA and others.
In a few weeks we will ask you to complete a follow-up survey so we can compare the results as the situation develops. We would be grateful if you could provide an email contact. Please note your responses will be strictly anonymous and not used for any reason
