Abstract [en]

The aims of this study were to investigate ‘satisfaction with care’ and its possible relationships to hope, health-related quality of life, anxiety and depression. Eighty-five patients with endocrine gastrointestinal (GI) tumours responded to questionnaires a few days after a hospital visit. ‘Satisfaction with care’ was assessed by the Comprehensive Assessment of Satisfaction with Care (CASC), health-related quality of life by the EORTC QLQ C-30 and anxiety and depression by the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS). Patients’ highest satisfaction scores were obtained for ‘general satisfaction’ and ‘nurses’ and doctors’ technical skills’. The lowest satisfaction was expressed for ‘doctors’ interpersonal skills’, ‘nurses’ communication skills’ and ‘care organization’. Patients reporting a clinically relevant level of anxiety were less satisfied with several care aspects than those reporting less anxiety. Satisfaction with ‘nurses’ communication skills’ and ‘doctors’ interpersonal skills’ was associated with several aspects of health-related quality of life, whereas satisfaction with ‘doctors’ information’, ‘nurses’ technical skills’ and ‘general satisfaction’ was not. Satisfaction with psychosocial aspects of care is related to the psychosocial function of patients with endocrine GI tumours.
