EORTC QLG at ISOQOL Annual Conference 2019

The International Society for Quality of Life Research (ISOQOL) is an international academic society, which aims to advance the study of health-related quality of life and other patient-reported outcomes. ISOQOL will be holding its 26th Annual Conference in San Diego, California, USA, from October 20th to 23rd 2019. EORTC Quality of Life Group will be very well represented with members presenting a significant number of abstracts for this year’s conference, with 12 abstracts being presented of which five are oral presentations. These address topics such as how to standardize the analysis Quality of Life data in clinical trials (SISAQOL), how to understand the clinical significance of results and how to use the EORTC Item Library, to name but a few of the highlights. Mogens Groenvold will introduce the EORTC QLQ-F17 Core Function Questionnaire!

Professor Anne-Sophie Darlington, Chair of EORTC QLG said “it is very exciting to see so much of the group’s innovative work recognized at this important conference”. Indeed, and Dr. Andrew Bottomley, Head of the QOL department and co-author of several abstracts stated said “it’s the second year in a row that the EORTC has had 12 abstracts presented at ISOQOL, which demonstrates a consistent and high quality output of international standard.”
