(Alexandria, VA, Thursday, October 31, 2019) – The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in collaboration with Harris Poll, will be releasing the third annual National Cancer Opinion Survey, which tracks the U.S. public’s views on e-cigarette use and cancer research.

As the world’s leading organization of oncology professionals who care for people with cancer, ASCO believes it is critical to understand what the public, including patients, think of, expect and need from the nation’s cancer care system. This year’s National Cancer Opinion Survey includes answers to the following questions:

  • Who regularly uses e-cigarettes?
  • What are young adults’ views and perceptions of e-cigarettes?
  • What are people doing to prevent their risk of cancer?
  • Do Americans know where to go for trusted cancer information?
  • Are people discussing their end-of-life care preferences with family members and caregivers?

This third annual poll, being released on Wednesday, October 30, was conducted online in the U.S. by The Harris Poll on behalf of ASCO between July 9-August 10, 2019, among 4,001 U.S. adults ages 18+, including 195 cancer patients.

ASCO’s National Cancer Opinion Survey was established in 2017 by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), in collaboration with The Harris Poll, to track the U.S. public’s views on cancer research and care. As the world’s leading organization of oncology professionals who care for people with cancer, ASCO believes it is critical to understand what the public, including patients, think of, expect, and need from the nation’s cancer care system. The poll, supported by the Mission Endowment of Conquer Cancer, the ASCO Foundation, is designed to be conducted annually to measure shifts in the public’s perceptions of a range of cancer-related issues over time.
