Assessment of Patient Experience During Treatment for Cancer

Not Recruiting

Trial ID: NCT01553825

Purpose

Assessing the mindset of cancer patients will help us better understand which patients are having difficulty dealing with the diagnosis and treatment that may not otherwise be fully appreciated by their physicians. By identifying such patients, we may then be able to design and implement strategies that can help improve their coping skills both during the treatment as well as after the completion of treatment. In addition to addressing physical concerns and symptoms, this approach will help address the overall emotional impact of a cancer diagnosis as more patients are living as cancer survivors.
