Cancer care is complex, and may involve treatment from different health professionals from different settings. It is acknowledged that cancer not only affects physical wellbeing, but psychosocial wellbeing, and may have a profound effect on family members. For these reasons, patient centred care is viewed as crucial to delivery of high quality cancer care. This project will produce new information about the differences in cancer patients’ experiences of and perceptions of patient centred care. Results will identify key gaps in quality of care and provide insights into how to address these.
