adequately informed," she added.
Co-investigator, Dr. Nancy Janz, an associate professor
in the School of Public Health, said the purpose of the
study is to understand how involved patients are in the
decision making process and whether they are given the
opportunity to be involved.
"We also want to know the extent to which participation
in the decision-making process affects the patient's quality
of life, " Janz said.
"Decision-making is very different in cancer care," Katz
said. "It has to be done quickly. It is clear that some men
and women may ask their physicians to make decisions for
them, but we are finding that many feel they don't have a
choice. The options should be laid out."
The study will be done in collaboration with Northwest-
ern University, Emory University and the University of
Southern California and will take place over a three-year
period in Atlanta, Los Angeles and Detroit.
Researchers will contact recently diagnosed breast can-
cer patients either over the phone or through mailings and
ask them questions about the quality of treatment they
19 states, including Michigan, have laws which demand
doctors document that their patients have been informed of
all of the treatment options available to them.
"Several studies suggest that these laws may not be the
answer to this problem," Katz said in a written state-
"Clinicians need to be engaged locally about improving
the quality of patient care and our study results will help
them develop new strategies to improve communication
with women during a very difficult time in women's lives,"

"TCF Bank was an ideal fit for
the University," said University
