Describing randomisation: patients' and the public's preferences compared with clinicians' practice.

Jenkins V, Leach L, Fallowfield L, Nicholls K, Newsham A - Br. J. Cancer (2002)

Bottom Line: We examined the preferences of the general public and patients towards the descriptions and compared the results with the clinicians' choice.Clinicians chose neither of these statements as closely resembling their own practice.This analogy used by 26% of oncologists, was viewed as trivialising and upsetting in the context of determining treatment for life threatening disease.
