Study: Cancer Patients Get Info From the Internet
[06/11/2001; Reuters Health]
Many cancer patients are
turning to the Internet for information about their
disease, according to the results of a recent study. In light
of this finding, ``physicians need to become educated about the
various Internet sites so they can steer patients to sites that
offer the most reliable, accurate and updated information,''
Dr. James M. Metz of the University of Pennsylvania Cancer Center
in Philadelphia told Reuters Health.
He presented his findings
recently at the American Society of Clinical Oncology's annual
meeting in San Francisco.
