The Value of Interpreting Social Service to New Cancer Patients as Seen in Their Subsequent Visits to Social Service
This study is based on recorded material used in a previous study done at Memorial Hospital, 444 East 63th Street, New York City, a hospital for cancer and allied diseases. In 1947, two of the doctors at Memorial Hospital, Doctors John Leach and Guy Robbins, made a study of the first five hundred patients seen in the examining clinic from January 1, 1947 and through the succeeding months. These were patients who were definitely diagnosed as having a malignancy, with the objective of determining the facts of delay and culpability of patient, doctor, and patient and doctor. A similar study had been done in 1933 by Doctors G. T. Pack and J. S. Gallo in which cases were selected by random sample from Memorial Hospital and Lendrim Tumor Clinic. Doctors Leach and Robbins wanted to see what progress had been made since the period between 1923 and 1933.
