Description

Research suggests that physicians who manage patients with advanced cancer often struggle with whether and how best to convey sensitive information about prognoses to these individuals for many reasons. Some studies indicate that physicians do not share information with patients about a terminal cancer prognosis despite the fact that end-of-life care discussions are often wanted by patients. Improving doctor-patient communication at the end of life may enhance the delivery of patient-centered care.

Objectives
