Watch this video to learn why it’s important for cancer patients to complete questionnaires about their symptoms and concerns
This video encourages cancer patients to complete questionnaires that gather information about their symptoms and other concerns.
Your answers help your healthcare team make the most of each visit, find problems early, ensure you receive the right care at the right time, and learn how to better care for people with cancer.
The Partnership funded the Patient Experience and Outcomes initiative to make the patient experience across the cancer journey more person-centred. The initiative aimed to have all participating Canadian regions measure and report the patient experience by 2017. Those standardized assessment tools will help guide person-centred care and any needed interventions.
