Minority patients are less likely to see oncologists who understand their culture
Studies have shown that minorities with cancer are underrepresented in clinical trials, have worse survival outcomes and are less likely to be offered genetic testing than their non-Hispanic white counterparts. For these and other reasons, many nonwhite minority cancer survivors believe their physicians should either share or understand their culture, according to results of a study conducted at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and UT Southwestern Medical Center.
