A study looking at quality of life of people with cancer (ECTQoL)
Please note - this trial is no longer recruiting patients. We hope to add results when they are available.
This pilot (feasibility) study is looking at how treatments affect the quality of life of people with cancer.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) consider how a treatment affects quality of life when deciding if it should be available in England and Wales. So it is important to have the best information possible.
The researchers want to identify a better way of finding out how treatment affects a person’s quality of life. Initially they will do this with people who have breast cancer. If this is successful they will do the same for other cancers.
The aim of this study is to find out if it is possible to do a large study on how cancer treatments affect quality of life.
