Abstract

India has a distinct pattern of cancer care delivery, with unique sociocultural milieu and patient characteristics. In the current era of patient-centered and personalized care, there is an unmet need for an abbreviated protocol for breaking bad news to cancer patients suitable for the Indian outpatient setting. We propose a short four-step protocol for breaking bad news effectively and caringly, in the outpatient department of oncology clinics.
