Dr Beyhan Ataseven - Kliniken Essen-Mitte, Essen, Germany

Dr Ataseven speaks with ecancer at ESMO 2017 about the cognitive, emotional and social adversity facing cancer patients today.

She describes how perceptions of some side effects, such as nausea, have changed over recent years, and that they continue to change among patients over the course of their treatment, which she ascribes to better control with other medicines.

However, Dr Ataseven notes that hair loss remains a concern, and that the general perceptions of side effects held by doctors does not always match up with their patients individual concerns.

Overall, she encourages honest communication between clinicians and their patients about their experience and expectation of side effects, and that patients are treated as people.
