236 Background: In Ontario, there is a concerted effort to screen all cancer outpatients for clinically significant symptoms at every visit, without causing undue burden on the patient. Although fatigue symptoms are common in cancer patients, severe fatigue may require clinical intervention. To reduce reporting fatigue, we evaluated the use of a single item(More)
64 Background: In a busy DC setting, the efficiency of identifying important treatment toxicities is essential to quality care. Using a systematic approach to collecting patient-reported outcomes in the waiting rooms of DC units is one possible means of improving care while involving patients. This study reports such a pilot study, and the associated(More)
68 Background: SD and FAT occur in 30-50% of cancer patients. Patient-reported outcome measure surveys are avenues through which healthcare providers (HCP) can receive symptom-related clinically relevant information directly from patients, and engage them in their own care plan. By asking patients to report symptoms rapidly through tablet/computer-based(More)
165 Background: In a busy chemo DC, any efficient means of tracking important chemotoxicities can improve quality of care. The study goal was to evaluate whether tablet technology available in a DC waiting room is able to capture prevalent and severe toxicities associated with chemotherapy using the patient reported outcome (PRO) - common toxicity criteria(More)
201 Background: While engagement in PA can lessen fatigue, improve quality of life (QOL) and/or improve survival in cancer survivors, to what extent patients are aware of this and how it affects their behavior is unclear. METHODS 1,244 adult cancer survivors across disease sites and stages (mostly curative) at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre (PMCC)(More)
155 Background: Patient-reported outcome measure (PROM) surveys are a tool used to collect information about clinically-relevant symptoms in patients. Touch-screen technology has been previously identified as a feasible and effective method of routinely capturing PROMs.Our aim was to evaluate cancer patients' acceptance and perception of usefulness of(More)
