Cancer-related Fatigue in patients with breast CA undergoing RT

By Linda Bergren posted 02-10-2017 06:29 AM


I am a graduate student at the University of Mary in Bismarck, ND. Myself and another student in rural North Dakota are working on CRF in patients with breast cancer undergoing radiation treatment, and I am trying to do some benchmarking regarding what other quality institutions are doing.

I wonder if anyone can tell me if you routinely screen for cancer-related fatigue (CRF)?

If yes, what screening tool do you use?

Is the tool working for you?

Could you share that tool with me?

What, if any CRF interventions does your institution currently offer patients?

Are the interventions having positive outcomes? Any problems?

Thank you in advance for your time and information.
