Quality of life in urban and rural settings

In a study using registry data, rural head and neck cancer survivors reported higher physical, emotional, and head and neck-specific quality of life than their urban counterparts.

The findings from this paper were recently published in the journal Oral Oncology, and add to growing evidence of important differences in life experiences of cancer survivors in urban and rural settings. Results such as these will allow health professionals, policy makers, and service providers to better serve these populations.
