Do people receiving treatment talk to you about the cost of their oncology drugs?

TOP - October 2011 Vol 4, No 7 published on October 20, 2011

In the September issue, we published an article entitled Patients Want to Discuss Cost of Cancer Care, Oncologists Often Avoid It. We wondered if patients were talking to their pharmacists about the cost of their oncology drugs.

Here’s how our online reading community responded:

  • 14%indicated they are never asked about drug costs
  • 48%said patients occasionally talk to them about drug costs
  • 38% are regularly talking with patients about drug costs
