Correlation of quality of life reports from patients with nervous system tumors and their clinicians

Takeaway

  • Weak to moderate correlation between patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and physician assessment of functional status among patients with central nervous system (CNS) tumors illustrates the potential value of incorporating PROs into practice. 

Why this matters

    Instruments used by clinicians to measure quality of life focus on functionality and may not accurately depict patients’ experiences.
