Protocol - Patient Experience with Cancer Care - Radiation Therapy

Add to My Toolkit
Description

The CAHPS® Cancer Care Survey asks adult patients (age 18 and older) to report on their experiences with the care team that delivered the cancer treatment and the cancer center’s office staff. The three versions of the Cancer Care Survey reflect the three most common treatment modalities in the United States: radiation oncology, medical oncology, and cancer surgery. The survey versions are customized to a specific treatment modality to enable patients to focus and report on their experiences with the medical team that provided that particular type of care (e.g., radiation therapy team). However, aside from the references to the care team, the questions are nearly identical across the three versions, and can be scored together. The Supplemental Items are optional and cover shared decision making, information for providers and access to care. All protocols include yes/no and Likert scale items.

Specific Instructions

Questions selected are from both the CAHPS® Cancer Care Survey. Radiation Therapy version questions 7 – 44 and the Supplemental Items from the CAHPS® Cancer Care Survey.

The target population for the CAHPS Cancer Care Survey is defined as adult patients (18 and older) who have a diagnosis of cancer and received active treatment for that cancer (radiation therapy) in an outpatient or inpatient setting in the past 6 months. The patient can be at any point in the cancer care continuum, and the intent of the treatment may be curative or palliative. Scoring

In addition, the CAHPS surveys allow for comparisons between entities (e.g., health plans, cancer care facilities, hospitals, provider groups) as well as between groups of patients (e.g., adults versus children, by payer types, by states, by regions, or on other respondent characteristics such as race, ethnicity, “education, etc.). CAHPS survey data were not intended to be used to compare one individual patient’s CAHPS scores to another; only to allow comparisons of groups of patients. 

More information on CAHPS surveys and methodology are available at https://www.ahrq.gov/cahps/index.html
