Results from studies comparing cancer patients' and staffs perceptions of the importance of curing behaviors, using the Caring Assessment Instrument (CARE-Q), have demonstrated that patients stress the importance of the task-oriented aspect of earing and clear information, whereas staff members stress the emotional aspect of earing. The aim ol the study was to explore whether cancer patients and staff differed with regard to their cognitive associations to CARE-Q behaviors. When 32 patients and 30 staff members were asked open-ended questions about their associations to nine preselected CARE-Q behaviors, the behaviors elicited similar associations in both groups. The authors concluded that patients and staff do not have different cognitive representations the CARE-Q behaviors.
