New Survey: Assessing Patient Awareness & Satisfaction About Information Received on the Potential Risks of Cancer-Associated VTE and Anticoagulation
Patients with cancer have a high risk of blood clot formation in their veins or arteries due to the cancer itself and anti-cancer treatments. Patient awareness of these complications is key for prompt recognition of symptoms and signs, risk factors, timely referral to hospital for diagnosis and treatment, as well as informed discussion with doctors about the use of blood thinners for prevention.
This questionnaire is intended for patients with cancer and aims at assessing their knowledge and satisfaction with the information received by health-care providers on the potential risks of cancer-associated blood clots and the use of blood thinners.
