    Article - En anglais

    Background

    Little research has examined the volume and pattern of physician use or the scope of multiple physician use in patients with cancer.

    Methods

    The authors studied a sample of 259 patients with advanced cancer who received outpatient chemotherapy at two hospital clinics and eight private oncology practices.

    Results

    These patients reported regularly seeing an average of three different physicians an average of 15 times in 3 months.

    The number of physicians seen was strongly correlated with the number of reported visits (r=0.65).
