Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Patients scheduled for bowel resection for colorectal cancer will be recruited. They will be asked to complete questionnaires about their health conditions, fitness levels, psychological status,nutritional status and preferences for a proposed prehabilitation programme assisted by the cancer care co-ordinator. This would require approximately an hour of their time.
That would be the end of their participation in the research project. They will not be required to participate in any programme as a part of this project.

Summary
Brief summary
This preliminary survey will determine the baseline characteristics and preferences for prehabilitation in patients schedule for colorectal cancer resection.

Who is it for?
You may be eligible to join this study if you are aged 18 years or above, have been diagnosed with colorectal cancer and scheduled for surgical resection.

Study details
“Surgical prehabilitation” is the process of making an individual as fit as they can be, before an operation so that they can better tolerate the stress of surgery. Surgical prehabilitation includes exercise, improving nutritional status and psychological counselling with an intention to increase your strength before surgery. Studies have shown that increasing fitness can reduce complications following bowel surgery. We are looking to design a prehabilitation programme for cancer patients at the Prince Charles Hospital.
To do that, we would like to know the health condition and fitness levels of the patients. We also want to know your preferences for such a programme. We believe that if we have this information, at a later date, we could design a programme that could be easily followed by the future patients. This is only a preliminary survey
