The Effects of Aggressive Patient Management on Cancer Therapy Management
This is an observational study of the effects of aggressive patient management. The records
of 50 patients treated under the aggressive management plan will be matched with the records
of 50 previous patients and attempts made to assess the improvement, if any, found.
Statistical analysis will compare the outcomes of the study group and the matched control
group for initial completion of planned therapy as per prescription, weight loss during
therapy, intercurrent illness, and intercurrent hospitalizations. Long term analysis will
compare the study group's outcomes (compared to expected outcomes) compared to the matched
Observational Model: Case Control, Time Perspective: Retrospective
To test effects of intensive patient management on patient's compliance with referral and subsequent treatment protocol.
