The interplay of financial toxicity, healthcare team communication, and psychosocial well-being among rural cancer patients and survivorsFinancial toxicity is a term that refers to the out-of-pocket costs, lost wages, and debt faced by cancer patients as well as the distress caused by financial strain. New research from Cancer Support Community’s Cancer Experience Registry examines the role of financial toxicity among cancer patients in rural settings and suggests that healthcare team communication may play a key role in helping patients manage the financial impacts of cancer on mental and social health.
