GlobalSurg 3 – Quality and outcomes after cancer surgery; a prospective, international cohort study
This study will be open to all hospitals performing surgery for breast, gastric and colorectal surgery, anywhere in the world.
Data collection will be by teams of 3 collaborators in 4 week periods between April and October 2018. Data collection can be performed by anyone from medical students upwards. All collaborators receive authorship on any publications from the study
