Brandes et al 2015 1  showed that the most influential barriers to expressing concerns during cancer consultations were related to providers' behaviour (e.g., providers do not explicitly invite patients to express concerns) and the environment where the consultation takes place (e.g., perceived lack of time).
It is our belief is that the Patient Concerns Inventory contributes to a strategy that helps overcome barriers to patients expressing concerns, and is appropriate to routine follow-up consultations.
