Abstract
Due to the nature of the disease, patients often have a privileged and close relationship with their oncologist, and the oncologist also with their patients. This may in turn be detrimental to the relation between the general practitioner and the patient. Patients will not return to their general practitioner until end of life care or a consultation at the patient's home if necessary. In order to maintain a balance between the caretakers and assure appropriate involvement of the family physician, continuous communication and exchange of information are essential. This review identifies some of the problems and potential conflicts, which may arise, and discusses how the interaction could be improved.
