Time Since First Treatment

The length of time since the respondent’s first treatment was a factor for only 2 out of the 47 questions analysed. Compared to people whose first treatment was a year or more ago, those whose first treatment was less than a year ago were:

  • more positive when asked whether, during their hospital visit, they found someone on the hospital staff to talk to about their worries or fears;
  • more negative when asked whether, once they started radiotherapy treatment, they were given enough information about whether their radiotherapy was working in a way they could understand.
