Purpose: This study investigated adherence to treatment guidelines on cancer-related anaemia and fatigue (CRA/CRF) and factors influencing the choice of intervention.

Data on administration of chemotherapy and use of epoetin or blood transfusions were abstracted from the medical records. Results: Fifty-three percent of patients with severe anaemia (Hb
