number of question during the consultation
The intervention prompt-sheet aims to increase the number of question by giving the opportunity to patients and companions to reflect on their informative needs on the basis of a wide range of possible questions from which to choose those perceived as most relevant in view of the subsequent consultation. Question asking is considered an index for patient participation during the consultation. The total number of patient questions during the consultation regarding diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and other issues is the primary outcome measure.
