PURPOSE The present study aimed to examine the effects of injury perceptions and perceived daily stress on health-related quality of life (HRQL) of individuals affected by a physical injury. METHODS Two hundred and forty injured individuals completed questionnaires assessing HRQL (Medical Outcome Health Survey short-form 36), perceived daily-life stress (Perceived Stress Scale), and injury perceptions (Brief-InjPQ). RESULTS The direct effects of stress on HRQL scores were not moderated by gender...

PURPOSE This study aimed to investigate whether a local survey applying EQ-5D and SAGE could provide data valuable in setting priorities. METHODOLOGY A cross-sectional household survey was used to collect information from a total of 1,899 elderly individuals aged 60 years and over living in the Nzega and Igunga districts using the WHO-SAGE and EQ-5D questionnaires. QALY weights were generated using the average of an EQ-5D index. A multivariable regression model was performed to analyse the effec...

PURPOSE Complications following upper gastrointestinal (UGI) surgery are common. Symptom-monitoring following discharge is not standardized. An electronic patient-reported outcome (ePRO) system providing feedback to patients and clinicians could support patients and improve outcomes. Little is known about patients' experiences of using such systems. This qualitative sub-study explored patients' perspectives of the benefits of using a novel ePRO system, developed as part of the mixed methods eRAP...

OBJECTIVES In China, multiple approaches to calculating EQ-5D utilities are available, including the two EQ-5D-3L (3L2014 and 3L2018) scoring functions, the EQ-5D-5L (5L) scoring function, and the crosswalk function linking the 3L utilities and 5L health states. The study compared utilities derived from them in terms of agreement and discriminative power; and assessed whether the use of different approaches may affect QALY estimation in Chinese type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients. METHODS Cross-secti...

PURPOSE The diagnosis and treatment of cancer negatively affect patients' physical, functional and psychological wellbeing. Patients' needs for care cannot be addressed unless they are recognized by healthcare providers (HCPs). The use of quality of life (QoL) assessments with feedback to HCPs might facilitate the identification and discussion of QoL-topics. METHODS 113 patients with stage I-IIIB breast cancer treated with chemotherapy were included in this randomized controlled trial. Patients ...

PURPOSE To develop an Arabic version of the CPQ8-10 and test its validity and reliability for use among Arabic-speaking children. METHODS The 25-item professionally translated questionnaire included two global rating questions across four domains, which was assessed through a pilot study on 20 participants who were not included in the main study. Children (n = 175) aged 8-10 years were consecutively recruited: group I (n = 120) included pediatric dental patients, group II (n = 25) included child...

PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to test the known-groups validity and responsiveness to change of the Patient Experience with Treatment and Self-management (PETS, vs. 2.0), a measure of treatment burden. METHODS The PETS and other standard measures were mailed at baseline and 12-month follow-up to adults living with multiple chronic conditions in southeast Minnesota (USA). A sample of 365 people (mean age = 62.1 years) completed both surveys. Baseline, 12-month, and changes in PETS burden ...

PURPOSE The aim of this study was to develop and ensure the content validity of a new patient-reported outcome measure, the Cancer Patient Empowerment Questionnaire (CPEQ), to measure the level of, desire for, and enablement of empowerment among cancer patients in follow-up. METHODS An iterative process based on: (i) empowerment theories by Zimmerman and Tengland, (ii) a systematic review of questionnaires measuring empowerment or related concepts among cancer patients, (iii) qualitative data fr...

PURPOSE This umbrella review aims to evaluate the quality, summarize and compare the conclusions of systematic reviews investigating the impact of curative treatment options on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC). METHODS The Cochrane Library, MEDLINE, Embase and Web of Science were searched independently by two authors from inception until 06 January 2020. Systematic reviews and meta-analyses assessing the impact of any curative treatment option on HR...

PURPOSE To examine factors related to resilience in military caregivers across caregiver health-related quality of life (HRQOL), caregiver sociodemographic variables, and service member/veteran (SMV) injury and health status. METHODS Caregivers (N = 346, Female = 96.2%; Spouse = 91.0%; Age: M = 40.6 years, SD = 9.3) of SMVs following a mild, moderate, severe, or penetrating TBI were recruited from U.S. military treatment facilities and via community outreach. Caregivers completed select TBI-Care...
