Abstract

QOL outcomes have become an integral component of many clinical oncology trials. Much work has been performed testing the validity and reliability of Q OL instruments. The current challenge is to understand better the clinical relevance of QOL research in oncology. QOL studies should focus on phase III trials with clear hypotheses that can lead to clinically meaningful interventions.
