Assessing the needs of breast cancer patients and their families.

Author information

University of Wisconsin--Madison.


Patient needs have long been elicited only through the use of customer satisfaction surveys, which unfortunately are not designed to obtain the in-depth information needed to guide the improvement of health care services. Through the use of the integrative group process and the help of many patients and hospital staffs, we developed a needs assessment survey for women with breast cancer. This article outlines this process and the results and discusses how we used these results to create a computer program designed to help women with breast cancer and their families.
