NBCA DVT/PE Oncology Awareness Survey Methodology
NBCA’s DVT/PE Awareness Survey was conducted by the national survey firm USA/Direct, Inc. The oncology patient sample, screened from an online research panel, consisted of 500 adults diagnosed with cancer or recurrence of cancer within the prior 12 months (mean age 58 years; range 20-80+; 64% females), most of whom were receiving active treatment. Responses from patients who required a hospital stay for treatment (n=206) were compared to responses of patients who were exclusively treated as outpatients (n=294).
