abstract

  • This population-based study reinforces the importance of self-reported health status as a predictor for OS. Routine HRQOL screening may identify patients who could benefit from early interventions to improve HRQOL. Future studies should explore associations between changes in HRQOL before and after cancer diagnosis and OS.
