    There are a number of limitations in this study. First, we cannot make conclusions about causal effects because of the cross-sectional study design. Second, these data were derived from a cohort of older patients in the Southeastern U.S. and therefore may reflect regional demographic, supplemental insurer, and institutional-related circum-stances that may not be generalizable to all older adults with cancer in other regions of the United States or elsewhere. Only those covari-ates that were available in our data were considered in the analysis; other factors may also influence both patient satisfaction and HRQoL. Lastly, use of the top-box method to estimate patient satisfaction scores may result in loss of information, however, this is the method used for reporting of satisfaction-related items in the CAHPS Clinician & Group Survey.
    In our sample of older patients with cancer, we did not find a rele-vant association between HRQoL and patient satisfaction domains. Therefore, our results indicate that for health care policy determina-tions, these two constructs should not be assumed to correlate. We identified three domains as potential areas for improvement of satisfac-tion with oncology care among older patients, including how patients access care, coordinate care, and engage within the healthcare system. Incidental findings suggested that satisfaction with care differs by KX2-391 and education, which warrants further examination. Finally, patient sat-isfaction assessment across age groups may contribute to inform oncol-ogy care providers on ways in which patients perceive the quality of care received, which ultimately affect healthcare organizations' accred-itation, ranking, and reimbursement.
