Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate (i) whether specific aspects of the initial consultation (IC) and/or patients' satisfaction with doctors' care are related to health-related quality of life (HRQoL), anxiety and depression among patients with carcinoid tumours and (ii) whether patients' satisfaction with doctors' care changes over time. The study has a longitudinal design. The HRQoL and psychosocial function among patients who met the doctors showing good ability to identify patients' worry and wish for information were compared with those patients who met doctors showing less good ability. Patients' HRQoL, anxiety, depression and satisfaction with doctors' care were assessed longitudinally, shortly after each of the first four admissions to specialist care. Patients who met doctors showing good ability to identify their wish for information at the IC reported higher levels of cognitive function. Higher satisfaction with doctors' care was related to higher emotional and cognitive function, to higher global QoL, and to lower levels of problems with diarrhoea, financial difficulties, constipation, anxiety and depression shortly after each of the first three admissions, although not after the fourth admission to the specialist care. Although most patients with carcinoid tumours report high satisfaction with care, it is important to be aware of the fact that some patients may be less satisfied. Doctors should provide patients with information which matches the individual patients' needs and preferences as patients' satisfaction with doctors' provision of information is related to patients' HRQoL, anxiety and depression.

Abstract [en]

The main aims were to: explore whether there is a relation between doctors’ ability to identify patients’ worry and wish for information and self-efficacy with regard to communicating with patients about difficult matters; describe which cues doctors consider when estimating patients’ worry and wish for information, and investigate whether there is a relation between patients’ satisfaction with doctors’ care and patients’ psychosocial function.

Eleven doctors and 69 patients (of which 36 patients participated in the longitudinal study) with carcinoid tumours participated. Doctors’ self-efficacy, and ability to identify patients’ worry/wish for information were investigated at patients’ first admission. Doctors were interviewed about which cues they considered when estimating patients worry/wish for information. Patients’ satisfaction with care (CASC SF 4.0) and psychosocial function (EORTC QLQ-C30, HADS) were measured longitudinally, during the first year after diagnosis.

Doctors reported higher self-efficacy when showing good ability to identify patients’ wish for information, than when showing less good ability, overestimated patients’ worry and underestimated patients’ wish for information. Doctors considered patients’ verbal behaviour and body language together with knowledge and experience when estimating patients worry and wish for information. Patients who met doctors showing good ability to identify their wish for information, reported a higher cognitive function than patients who met doctors showing less good ability. At all assessments patients expressed high satisfaction with doctor’ care and patients’ satisfaction did not change over time. Patients’ satisfaction with doctors’ care were related to their psychosocial function shortly after the first three admissions to specialist care. Patients with carcinoid tumours in some respects reported a worse HRQoL than the general Swedish population. Fatigue, diarrhoea, limited possibilities to work/pursue daily activities, and worry that the illness will get worse were among the most prevalent, and worst, aspects of disease- and treatment related distress.
