Abstract: 

Cancer patients' experiences of care are increasingly recognised as an important measure of quality-of-care. The extent to which these experiences impact on patient-reported outcomes, such as health-related quality-of-life (HRQoL), is not well understood. Cancer registries provide a high quality, population-based, sampling frame for studies of patient experiences of care; such studies provide important evidence regarding quality-of-care from the patient's perspective. In this study, care experiences were associated with HRQoL and psychological well-being. These findings, which will be further investigated, provide further rationale for initiatives to improve quality-of-care.
