Symptom Burden, Relationships, and Health Care Communication: Considerations for Lung Cancer Survivorship
From May 31st through June 4th, the Cancer Support Community will be in Chicago, IL at the American Society of Clinical Oncology’s Annual Conference. As part of this conference, our Research and Training Institute (RTI) released findings of a study on over 200 adult patients with a diagnosis of lung cancer.
Whether you are familiar with the phrase distress screening or are seeing it for the first time, the results we are sharing will show how important this tool is for patients diagnosed with cancer.
Anyone who faces a cancer diagnosis is at risk for experiencing an elevated risk of distress. A study by the Cancer Experience Registry of the Cancer Support Community provides convincing evidence that culture can have a powerful impact on the type and degree of that distress.
