Abstract

Early palliative care implementation has been shown to be beneficial for patients with metastatic non–small-cell lung cancer. This study surveyed United States oncologists and patients with metastatic non–small-cell lung cancer on their practices and attitudes regarding the role of early palliative care referral. Our study highlights that few patients are referred at the time of diagnosis, likely owing to several noteworthy barriers.
