(BPT) - New data from The Cancer Experience: A National Study of Patients and Caregivers finds that nearly one in four cancer patients and caregivers remain dissatisfied with their care experience (independent of treatment outcome). The results of this 2014 study echo the findings from the inaugural study, also commissioned by Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) and released in 2013. Findings also confirm that patients and caregivers value open communication with their care team, which is often not part of their treatment experience.
