PhD project: Health-related quality of life in patients with sarcoma.
Joshua's PhD project seeks to explore health-related quality of life issues in patients with sarcoma. His research proposal includes:
- A systematic review of previous research in health-related quality of life in patients with sarcoma.
- In-depth patient interviews investigating what health-related quality of life issues are relevant to patients with sarcoma, and how these issues and needs change throughout diagnosis, treatment, and short-term follow-up.
- Conceptualising relevant health-related quality of life issues for patients with sarcoma, and using that to create a questionnaire that measures health-related quality of life in this population.
- Piloting an STS-specific HRQoL instrument in clinical practice
