Patients’ needs in hematology: whose perspectives?

Patients’ needs in hematology: whose perspectives?

Listening to the patient, and codifying their input.

"In patients with hematologic disorders, the physician-patient partnership is crucial to provide patient-centered care and to reduce suffering due to the disease. This could be reinforced by the implementation of Patient-reported outcomes, PRO, assessment in routine practice, ensuring that clinicians use this information in their decision-making process. Furthermore, accurate evaluation of symptom severity is critical for optimal care of patients with hematologic disorders, and for alleviating symptom burden of disease and treatment-related adverse events, ultimately improving the QoL in this patient population."
