Patient-centered communication for discussing oncotype DX testing.
The researchers identified patient-centered communication strategies/gaps for discussing Oncotype DX testing (ODX) results. They applied a patient-centered communication framework to analyze qualitative interviews with oncologists about how they communicate about ODX with patients. Overall, providers discussed four patient-centered communication domains: exchanging information, assessing uncertainty, making decisions and cross-cutting themes.
