Researchers would like you to share your experience of food perception and preferences whilst living with cancer. The results of this study help researchers understand sensory impairment of cancer patients and this knowledge will allow the development of food or meals tailored to the perception and preferences of cancer patients. It will also help provide practical recommendations to patients and their families to maintain the pleasure of eating, thus improving patients' nutrition and well-being.
The survey is completely anonymous, no information allowing the direct identification of the person will be collected. You will be asked questions about: 

  • Gender, age and health condition (primary site of cancer, type of treatment, duration since treatment)
  • Dietary habits and food preferences
  • Subjective sensory perception and oral condition.
