Cancer and diabetes

Patient reported outcomes

  • Researcher: Pauline Vissers
  • Start project: 2011
  • Summary:
    Due to the increased aging of the population and better treatment and detection of diseases, the number of cancer survivors with concurrent chronic diseases is increasing. Nowadays approximately one in five cancer patients also suffers from concurrent diabetes. It has previously been shown that having both cancer and diabetes negatively impacts survival. In addition, previous studies indicate that diabetes patients might have an increased risk to develop cancer. Although numerous studies focus on mortality and cancer incidence after diabetes, considerably less attention has been paid to the potential consequences the combination of both cancer and diabetes can have on Patient-Reported Outcomes (PROs) such as quality of life, anxiety and depression. PROs are important outcome measures to help improve the quality of care for elderly living with chronic diseases. This thesis provides insight in the effect of both cancer and diabetes on PROs.
