Shared and Unshared Barriers to Cancer Symptom Management Among Urban and Rural American Indians

Description
Reports on a 5-year study measuring cancer symptom management in both rural and urban American Indian (AI) populations in the southwestern U.S. Separates findings into shared barriers, such as transportation and lack of support services, and unshared barriers, such as cultural beliefs about treatment and language differences, between rural and urban groups.
