Telehealth and satisfaction


The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has changed how cancer survivorship care is delivered. (Al‐Shamsi, 2020). To protect vulnerable breast cancer patients, health care providers are moving towards telecommunication such as telephone, video, and secure messaging (electronic mail) versus in-person visits to connect with their patients (Segelov et al., 2020) during this pandemic. Breast cancer survivorship visits can be safely deferred from in-person visits to telehealth visits (Dietz et al., 2020). This doctoral project examines the impact of transitioning from in-person to telehealth (telephone or video) visits on patient satisfaction and recall of information for breast cancer survivors reviewing their Survivorship Care Plan (SCP) at an oncology clinic in Northern California.
