Share Your Experience: Whipple Surgery for Pancreatic Cancer

Share your experience with Whipple surgery for pancreatic cancer in an online survey. This survey is exploring the alleviation of distress in the pre-operative period before a Whipple, since decreasing distress has been shown to improve surgical recovery in other types of surgery. This survey should take about 15 minutes to complete. From your responses, an intervention will be developed in order to address sources of distress prior to surgery in a group of older adults undergoing a Whipple for pancreatic cancer.
