This is the first study to report Edmonton Symptom Assessment System (ESAS) and Palliative Performance Scale (PPS) scores in a large, geographically based cohort with a full scope of cancer diagnoses, including patients treated for cure. In this ambulatory cancer population, the high prevalence of numerous symptoms parallels those reported in palliative populations and represents a target for improved clinical care; it also sets the groundwork for future research on patient and provider outcomes using linked administrative healthcare data.
