Participant FAQs

How long will it take to complete the questionnaire?

The questionnaire includes 21 questions (sections). Not all of these questions may apply to you.

Depending on how much information you can provide, it will take about 30 to 60 minutes. You do not have to answer all questions in one session. After your registration you can login, start the questionnaire and save your information at anytime. You can login again at a later time to continue the questionnaire or edit your details.

Can I get someone else to fill out the questionnaire on my behalf?

Yes, with your permission (controlled by access to your login details). 

This may be a friend, relative or one of your treating doctors. The way in which the questionnaire has been structured is such that the questions are all directed at the patient i.e. ‘When were you diagnosed with your tumor?’. If the person is filling out the questionnaire on the patient’s behalf this person should interpret them as if he or she was the patient and answer accordingly. For more information go to Patient Proxy.

What if I don’t have time to finish the questionnaire?

You do not have to answer all questions in one session.
