Background Patient-reported outcomes (PROs) are frequently used for medical decision making, at the levels of both individual patient care and healthcare policy. Evidence increasingly shows that PROs may be influenced by patients’ response shifts (changes in interpretation) and dispositions (stable characteristics).

Despite international recommendations of including patient-reported outcomes (PROs) in randomised clinical trials (RCTs), a 2014 review concluded that few RCTs of bladder cancer (BC) report PRO as an outcome. We therefore aimed to update the 2014 review to synthesise current evidence-based knowledge of PROs from RCTs in BC. A secondary objective was to examine whether quality of PRO reporting has improved over time and to provide evidence-based recommendations for future studies in this area. We...

To date, it remains unknown which patients report a clinically-relevant improvement in fatigue following pulmonary rehabilitation (PR). The purpose of this study was to identify and characterize these responders. Demographics, lung function, anxiety (anxiety subscale of the 90-item symptom checklist (SCL-90-A)), depression (Beck depression inventory for primary care (BDI-PC)), exercise tolerance (six-minute walking distance test (6MWD)), and health status (Nijmegen clinical screening instrument ...
Background and Aims A previous multicenter randomized trial demonstrated that radiofrequency ablation (RFA) significantly reduced the risk of neoplastic progression compared with surveillance (1.5% vs 26.5%) in patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE) and low-grade dysplasia (LGD). In the same population, this study aimed to compare the quality of life (QOL) and illness perception (IP) among patients treated with RFA and patients kept under surveillance. Methods From June 2007 to June 2011, patien...
