Please spare a few minutes to read this letter.
The Centre of Psycho-oncology for Education and Research (COPER), Bangalore is an initiative of Department of Science and Technology, Government of India and an associate of National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS), Bangalore.
COPER is a pioneering effort in the country, established with avowed objective of establishing the field of Psycho-oncology through education, training, research and service.
In this regard COPER is conducting a survey (opinion poll) to understand from treating oncologists and cancer health care providers their views and opinions on the psychological issues of cancer patients. Given your vast experience in the field, we believe that your invaluable views and opinions will contribute significantly to our knowledge and understanding of the field and the prevailing scenario of psychosocial care in the country. This collective wisdom will pave the way for meaningful programs and initiatives in the field of Psycho-oncology and will enable us to translate them into effective psychosocial care for our patients.
We assure you of absolute confidentiality. We will not hold you to your opinion! Your views and opinions will not be published individually or by your name. The data will be used for scientific purposes and for planning programs and initiatives in the field of Psycho-oncology through COPER.
Below are given 12 questions, all you have to do is just put a tick mark in the box that best describes your view. If you do not wish to reveal your name or identity, skip the name box. This whole exercise should take you less than 5 minutes!
Please join us in this mission. Together we can make a difference!
With warm regards,
Dr. Brindha Sitaram
