Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review

Abstract

QOL assessment is essential to quality cancer care, and clinical research can test interventions that can be integrated in practice. Attention to patient QOL concerns is contingent on communication between patients and providers. Inclusion of QOL assessment in practice also is a valuable message to patients that we care about the person with cancer and that QOL is the ultimate goal of oncology practice.
