Summary of "Proton therapy re-irradiation preserves health-related quality of life in large recurrent glioblastoma."

Proton therapy could minimize the risk of side effects and, therefore, reduce the possible detrimental effect on health-related quality of life (HRQOL) of re-irradiation. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of re-irradiation with active scanning proton therapy on recurrent glioblastoma (GBM) in terms of HRQOL scored by the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire (EORTC QLQ)-C30 and EORTC Quality of Life Questionnaire Brain Cancer Module (QLQ-BN20).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A measurement index derived from a modification of standard life-table procedures and designed to take account of the quality as well as the duration of survival. This index can be used in assessing the outcome of health care procedures or services. (BIOETHICS Thesaurus, 1994)

Nurses whose goal is to improve health and quality of life in a population or community through the prevention and treatment of disease and other physical and mental health conditions, the surveillance of cases and health indicators, and the promotion of healthy behaviors through public education and awareness.

The levels of excellence which characterize the health service or health care provided based on accepted standards of quality.

The personal cost of acute or chronic disease. The cost to the patient may be an economic, social, or psychological cost or personal loss to self, family, or immediate community. The cost of illness may be reflected in absenteeism, productivity, response to treatment, peace of mind, QUALITY OF LIFE, etc. It differs from HEALTH CARE COSTS, meaning the societal cost of providing services related to the delivery of health care, rather than personal impact on individuals.

The concept concerned with all aspects of the quality, accessibility, and appraisal of health care and health care delivery.
