The paper proposes a patient perception that would look at whether patients' perceived efficacy of their cancer treatment equals that of their doctors' analysis of their well being as cancer patients. The study seeks to establish whether a particular type of treatment and cancer drug helps improve the patient's perception of the improvement of their health condition. The paper discusses and analyzes extensively descriptions of patient profiles and their attitude towards their sickness.

From the Paper:

"Though this study follows a dominantly quantitative paradigm, the researcher will also informally interview medical doctors in order to generate information that may not be provided or discussed in the patient perception survey. These information and data includes interviewing the doctor about patients' histories, response to cancer drug treatment, and his/her overall opinion about the patient in general."
