Thinking of planning a research study concerning cancer communication? A good place to start is HINTS, the Health Information National Trends Survey, which has been fielded three times over the last several years (most recently in 2007-2008 with almost 7,700 respondents) and has been developed into a highly usable resource by the National Cancer Institute. Questions and answers on topics such as cancer screening behaviors, risk perceptions, information exposure and seeking about cancer, patient-provider interactions, patient numeracy, and a variety of cancer related behaviors concerning smoking, skin protection, and nutrition and physical activity are included. You'll have some hunches supported and, if you're like me, challenged, by scrolling through the pages of HINTS topics.
