Quality of life in cancer patients - an hypothesis K C Caiman Department of Oncology, University of Glasgow Author's abstract Quality of life is a difficult concept to define and to measure. An hypothesis is proposed which suggests that the quality of life measures the difference, or the gap, at a particular period of time between the hopes and.   A recent editorial published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology pointed out that it is ‘disappointing’ that despite the fact that thousands of patients have been enrolled in cancer clinical trials with a HRQOL component, ‘there are relatively few examples of formal quality-of-life measurement that have influenced individual patient Cited by:   Cancer of the prostate is the most common cancer in men (excluding nonmelanomatous skin cancer) with approximately new cases expected to be diagnosed during (1).For patients with metastatic prostate cancer, treatment is primarily palliative (2).Endocrine manipulations remain the standard approach, and these manipulations rely Cited by:

The purpose of the Symposium in the Clinical Significance of Quality of Life Measures in Cancer Patients was to delineate in simple language the degree of consensus that existed regarding clinical significance.

Figure 1 - statistical significance and clinical irrelevance. The effect is the estimate of the impact for the treatment being tested. Many primary outcomes in cancer trials use time to event data looking at overall survival and progression-free survival.

Time to event data is challenging because of incomplete data leading to censoring. A QOL instrument was developed to measure the specific concerns of long term cancer survivors. The QOL-CS is based on previous versions of the QOL instrument developed by researchers at the City of Hope National Medical Centre (Grant, Padilla, and Ferrell).

This instrument was revised over a one year pilot by Hassey-Dow and Ferrell. The revised Cited by: The original six articles were presented at the Symposium on Clinical Significance of Quality of Life Measures in Cancer Patients at the Mayo.

A total of cancer patients were included. With some modification, the European Organization for Research and Treatment. Following the development of reliable and valid self-report questionnaires, health-related quality of life has been assessed in tens of thousands of patients and a wide variety of cancers.

This review is based on a selection of data published in the last decade and is intended primarily for healthcare by: Cancer can produce many different symptoms, some subtle and some not at all subtle. An increasingly important issue in oncology is to evaluate quality of life (QoL) in cancer patients.

The cancer-specific QoL is related to all stages of this by:   The Clinical Significance Consensus Meeting Group of the Symposium on the Clinical Significance of Quality-of-Life Measures in Cancer Patients produced 6 articles regarding the clinical significance of quality of life (QOL) assessments in oncology.

Having a potentially life-threatening disease like cancer often leads people to examine their lives and look for meaning. In fact, this search for meaning may be the aspect of cancer that most often has a positive influence on life. The fear of death that affects most people when they are diagnosed with cancer, often leads us to think about.

Among the most widely used instruments to assess quality of life (QOL) in patients with cancer are the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer core questionnaire (EORTC QLQ-C30) and the Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy, cancer instrument (FACT-G).

This study compared these approaches in patients who had undergone esophagectomy for by: Introduction It is our pleasure to invite you to the 5th EORTC Quality of Life in Cancer Clinical Trials Conference which will be held in This event will give participants the opportunity to learn about the latest topics in quality of life (QOL) and patient reported outcomes research.

The most recent studies supplemented their assessments with site-specific questionnaires. Overall, 59 different instruments have been used to measure quality of life in cancer patients [Additional file 1].

With the advent of new and more effective cancer therapies, patients with cancer are surviving longer than in the past. This has led to increased importance for maintaining good QOL in cancer by: 1. The PIQoL-AD has been used in several trials assessing quality of life (QoL) in parents of children with atopic dermatitis (AD), treated with pimecrolimus cream 1%.

Secondary analysis of data from four trials (n = ) was undertaken to help interpret the meaningfulness (significance) of the QoL results.

This form of treatment is also called palliative care. According to National Cancer Institute, the goal of palliative care is to prevent or treat, as early as possible, the symptoms and side effects of the disease. A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text.

In this pooled analysis, the authors examined correlations between single-item and multiple-item quality of life (QOL) measures and assessed the agreement between clinically significant changes in QOL and patient-reported adverse events (AE).

It was more than 30 years ago that the first efforts to incorporate quality-of-life (QOL) measurements into cancer treatment trials began in studies of women with advanced breast cancer (1).In that study, the investigators used an ad hoc instrument with linear analog scales to focus on the common side effects of chemotherapy that was being given to women with advanced metastatic breast cancer Cited by: Symposium on Quality of Life in Cancer Patients Assessing Clinical Significance in Measuring Oncology Patient Quality of Life: Introduction to the Symposium, Content Overview, and Definition of Terms Jeff A.
