Abstract

The response rate and information quality achieved show that this method of follow-up is feasible, in cases of discharged or defaulting patients. These data will complement those derived from hospital-based follow-up studies, to give a broader understanding of the spectrum of late effects experienced by survivors and may inform the development of specific long-term follow-up protocols.
