Dr Daniel Vorobiof - Sandton Oncology Centre, Sandton, South Africa

Dr Daniel Vorobiof talks to ecancer at the 2019 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting about a survey that looks to collect information on patients that might not necessarily be conveyed to the doctor.

He explains that while patients will usually share how they are physically responding to treatment, they tend not to tell the doctor about how they are dealing with it emotionally and financially.

Dr Vorobiof reports that 256 patients completed the survey from a variety of english-speaking countries around the world.
