Introducing the CAHPS Cancer Care Survey (Webcast)
On June 13, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) hosted a webcast about the new CAHPS® Cancer Care Survey, which measures patients' experiences with cancer treatment in outpatient and inpatient settings. This survey was developed by the American Institutes for Research and the Mayo Clinic, with funding from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the National Cancer Institute, and the California Health Care Foundation. The speakers discussed the purpose of the survey, how it was developed, and how to administer the survey and analyze its results.
