Evaluation of a Preoperative Clinic for Women With Gynecologic Cancer.

Journal Article

Although many patients with gynecologic cancer undergo surgery, time constraints during the preoperative consultation may affect the accuracy of the information exchange, as well as compromise the quality of the patient assessment and care plan. Both put patients at a higher risk for complications during surgery and the postoperative period.
