We are a team of researchers dedicated to supporting effective communication between patients and health care professionals.
We know that persons affected by cancer can be profoundly influenced by the communications they have with their professional health care providers. We also know that such communications, either positive or negative, are often powerfully important experiences.
Cancer patients have told us a great deal about the effect that either helpful or unhelpful communications have on their quality of life, the meaning cancer has in their lives, and its lasting repercussions on their cancer experience.
