Palliation is rarely a topic in studies on advanced cancer
Date:4/24/2014

in diseases that are expected to lead to death in the foreseeable future, especially as therapy usually places a burden on patients. Many of those involved, physicians, researchers and also industry representatives, repeatedly emphasize that quality of life is of paramount importance for this patient group. It is thus all the more incomprehensible that this aspect is still clearly neglected in studies."

Process of report production

The present final report was generated in collaboration with external experts within the framework of the general commission. To promote the Institute's scientific independence, the Federal Joint Committee (G-BA) awarded a general commission to IQWIG in December 2004 and extended it in 2006 to cover information on the quality and efficiency in the health care system. This allows IQWiG to independently select and work on topics. In contrast to other types of reports, no commenting procedure is held for these reports.

The executive summary provides an overview of the background, methods and further results of the report.
