Abstract

Patients who belong to US TOO have many emotional and educational needs that are not currently being fulfilled by physicians. Although the goals of therapy are viewed similarly by patients and physicians, much of the important cancer- and treatment-related information that physicians report they have provided is not recalled by patients. Policy makers would be wise to devise systematic strategies such as shared decision-making tools and better linkages to support groups to ensure that patients' needs are being met.
