AbstractThere are indications that in cancer patients quality of life is a better predictor of survival than clinical measures such as tumour response and stage of disease. In addition, health care professionals’ expectations about the effect of a particular treatment on quality of life often do not correspond with the experience of the patient. These are all reasons for every oncological patient to complete a short questionnaire on quality of life. Using this questionnaire can improve communication between care provider and patient, and also give the care provider insight into the problems that are important to the patient at that time. This insight could subsequently lead to counseling tailored to the patient, and, if necessary, modification of treatment or referral for supportive care. A second aim is to link information on quality of life to clinical pathways and treatment guidelines.
