Research has shown that patients treatment plans depend on open and honest communication from their providers regarding their health care. Providers felt that it is important to have early end of life discussions with cancer patients. Some of the barriers to having early end of life discussions with cancer patients were comfort level, lack of training in medical school, and lack of communication skills. Cancer patients felt that there are gaps to receiving quality of care, some of these gaps included comfort level, open and honest communication, and knowledge level of diagnosis. The data collection and analysis has shown that there are barriers to having early end of life discussions. It is hoped that this paper would have the information and data collected for future projects to be developed.
