Patient Population

Women without evidence of disease after primary potentially curative treatment for any stage of endometrial cancer comprise the target population. Of particular interest are outcomes from follow-up strategies reported for patients at a lower risk of recurrence (i.e., stage IA or IB, grade 1 or 2) and those at a higher risk of recurrence (i.e., stage IA or IB, grade 3, or stage IC or advanced stage).

Research Question(s)

What is the most appropriate strategy for the follow-up of patients with endometrial cancer who are clinically disease free after receiving potentially curative primary treatment? Specifically, do differences in follow-up intervals, diagnostic interventions, clinical setting, or specialty influence patient outcomes related to local or distant recurrence, survival, or quality of life?
