Improving Supportive Care For Patients With Thoracic Malignancies
The purpose of this study is to use a proactive approach to improve symptom management of patients with thoracic malignancies and ensure receipt of evidence-based cancer care delivery. In this pilot study, the investigators propose to evaluate the feasibility of using outbound, proactive telephone symptom assessment strategies and ensuring evidence-based care receipt and measure the efficacy of this approach on patient satisfaction with their care, patient activation, quality of life and use of healthcare resources.
