A cross-sectional study of unmet needs of lymphoma patients in patient-doctor communication.
European lymphoma patients, regardless of region of residence, would like more information and support than currently provided by their doctors. Respondents indicate doctors are more likely to address physical aspects of care, with the exception of fatigue. A large gap exists regarding communication surrounding the emotional/psychosocial issues that lymphoma patients’ experience. LC advocates for stronger patient-centered care that addresses these gaps in communication. Continuous effort should be made to inform and educate lymphoma patients adequately and appropriately at all points of clinical contact.
