The changing needs of patients with cancer at home : a longitudinal view.
Changes in the daily living needs of 629 patients with advanced cancer were investigated (1) during and (2) 3 to 6 months after a course of outpatient chemotherapy and/or radiation treatment.
The analytic sample consisted of patients completing both baseline and follow-up interviews (n=434).
At both times, the point prevalence of need and unmet need for assistance with personal care, instrumental activities, transportation, and home health tasks was calculated.
In addition, the prevalence of new need and unmet need at follow-up was determined as were the rates of resolution of baseline need.
