Florian Scotté presents the results of the national study barometer on supportive care in cancer. Between September and November 2013, over 700 physicians and over 1,500 patients were interviewed. The survey evaluated supportive care organisations within the medical institutions, patients’ perception of supportive care, the healthcare providers that the patient is in contact with during treatment and follow-up, supportive care measures provided and information relating to them as well as supportive care in relation to disease stage. While cancer patients are widely aware of palliative care, the majority of them have never heard of supportive care which leaves room for improvement in this area.
