Abstract
Colorectal cancer is one of major public health concerns in Canada. Prior studies have demonstrated a substantial proportion of patients in Alberta with stage III colon or stage II/III rectal cancer did not receive guideline-recommended adjuvant chemotherapy. Certain patient factors related with not receiving adjuvant chemotherapy have been assessed. In this population-based study, we examined the relationship between oncologist and patients’ not receiving adjuvant chemotherapy and estimated the oncologist-specific probability for patient’s not receiving adjuvant chemotherapy. End-of-life (EOL) care forms an important component in cancer care continuum. Using validated quality indicators for EOL cancer care, we evaluated aggressiveness of EOL care in Alberta for patients who died of colorectal cancer in 2006-2009 and examined factors that were related to aggressive use of health care services at the EOL.
