Brief Description: The Availability of Patient Support Resources Measure evaluates the frequency with which various patient support resources (e.g., patient support groups, videos/presentations about treatment options) were available for newly-diagnosed breast cancer patients within the past 12 months. Responses are given on a five-point Likert scale indicating the share of patients for whom the item applies where 1 is “Few or almost none”, 3 is “About half”, and 5 is “Almost all”. The scale was originally drafted for use with breast oncologists but the individual items could be adapted to ask about any type of patient support resources.
