Quality of Life in Long-term Cancer Survivors: Implications for Future Health Technology Assessments in Oncology

Office of Health Economics | July 2018 | Quality of Life in Long-term Cancer Survivors: Implications for Future Health Technology Assessments in Oncology

The Office of Health Economics has undertaken a literature review which  examines whether there is evidence to support the assumption that the quality of life (QoL) of  long-term cancer survivors (LTCS) can be similar to that of age-/sex-matched population samples.  The review included 20 papers which represented  23 studies covering a range of cancers, with the LTCS in the studies were more likely to have experienced early-stage cancer relative to late-stage cancer (Source: Office of Health Economics).

The news release is available from the Office of Health Economics 

The literature review can be downloaded from the OHE
