NBCA DVT/PE 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).

NBCA is sharing additional results of its DVT/PE Awareness Survey to order free copies of the NBCA DVT/PE Awareness Survey DVD, contact NBCA 877.4No.Clot (877-466-2568). NBCA is a patient-led advocacy organization dedicated to promoting patient and public awareness about the signs and symptoms of DVT and PE.
