Evaluation of a Patient-Reported Symptom Index for NMIBC

Overview

About this study

This project will develop and evaluate a patient-reported symptom index to assess the impact of treatment for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer on patient burden, toxicity, symptoms and side effects. The symptom index will provide a method for assessing treatments from the patient's perspective; help healthcare professionals make better informed treatment decisions, and provide a method to be able to effectively evaluate treatments for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer.

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate.

Publications

  • Nonmuscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) is a chronic condition requiring intensive follow-up, repeated endoscopic examinations, tumor resections, and intravesical treatments that can occur every 3 months for life. In this clinical context, patient-reported outcomes (PROs) are a critical concern for patients and their managing clinicians. PROs have enormous potential to be integral to treatment assessment and recommendations for NMIBC; however, current PRO measures are inadequate for NMIBC because they lack key NMIBC-specific symptoms and side effects associated with contemporary treatments.
