Abstract: In oncology consultations patients receive crucial information about their disease, treatment and prognosis. It is important that patients remember and understand this information so that they can make informed treatment decisions, adequately adhere to a treatment plan and cope with their disease and possible side-effects. However, 40–80% of the information given by healthcare providers in a consultation is not remembered by patients and more than half of the given information is recalled incorrectly [1].
