Grief is a common response to loss of any kind, and can include conflicting feelings, emotions, or patterns of behavior.

Working in neuro-oncology can be challenging, as patients are often grappling with deadly disease and significant neurological symptoms, for which healthcare providers may experience grief.

To date, no tools have been created that specifically evaluate grief in healthcare providers, and the burden of grief among those working in neuro-oncology has not yet been explored.

In order to evaluate the impact of grief experienced by neuro-oncology health care providers, a novel survey, the Neuro-Oncology Grief Index (NOGI) was created.

This survey, adapted from the previously validated Texas Revised Grief Inventory Scale and the Brief-Cope questionnaire, has been created to assess grief and coping behaviors used by those working in neuro-oncology.

By completing this survey, your responses will be used to estimate the prevalence of grief experienced by those working in neuro-oncology and help us better understand coping behaviors of healthcare providers after the death of a patient.

With this information, more appropriate strategies can be established to improve the way healthcare providers address grief; particularly in those working in neuro-oncology.
If you have any questions regarding this survey, please contact Dr. Shlomit Yust Katz at This study has been approved by the IRB of the Davidoff Cancer Center.
