This project will develop and evaluate a patient-reported symptom index to assess the impact of treatment for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer on patient burden, toxicity, symptoms and side effects. The symptom index will provide a method for assessing treatments from the patient's perspective; help healthcare professionals make better informed treatment decisions, and provide a method to be able to effectively evaluate treatments for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer.
The overarching aim of this research is to develop and evaluate a patient-reported Symptom Index (SI) for individuals with NMIBC (the NMIBC-SI) that is acceptable to patients, reliable, valid and responsive, and fit for purpose in clinical trials and clinical practice.
Specific clinical aims:
In field test 1, 200 participants will complete one questionnaire either in hard copy (pencil and paper) or online, at a time that is convenient for the participant. The questionnaire may take up to 20 minutes to complete.
In field test 2, 250 participants will complete quality of life questionnaires at four different time points 1) before tumour resection, 2) 1 week after resection, 3) 8 weeks after resection, and 4) 1 year after resection. The questionnaires can be completed in the clinic or at home, either in hard copy (pencil and paper) or online, at a time that is convenient for the participant but still within the relevant time point. The questionnaires may take up to 30 minutes to complete.
