HumanInsight A Survey on the Care of Patients with Cancer during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Gan To Kagaku Ryoho. 2022 Aug;49(8):867-871.
The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to significantly impact cancer treatment due to the shortage of medical supply, including the anxiety of patients and their families-specifically those associated with the risk of infection. We conducted a questionnaire survey using the internet service formrun between March 1 and 31, 2021. A total of 126 hospitals and 65 patients responded to the survey. Telemedicine perception differed between hospitals and patients. Hospitals found telemedicine to be useful, whereas patients did not; the main reasons for this were inadequate examinations and consultations and difficulty in communicating symptoms. Although telemedicine is regarded as one of the most effective tools during the COVID-19 pandemic, there are still issues with its widespread application. Notably, it would be essential to collaborate with local hospitals to improve cancer treatment during this pandemic.
