Abstract

Objective Non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) is a chronic condition requiring ongoing treatment and endoscopic examinations that are frequent and can be life-long. To ensure the comprehensive assessment of the benefits and harms of treatments for NMIBC, the impact on important and relevant patient-reported outcomes (PROs) should be determined. We systematically reviewed the NMIBC PRO literature to determine the suitability of available PRO measures (PROMs) for use in evaluating patient outcomes in NMIBC research. Methods We searched six electronic databases, reference lists, and key authors. Two reviewers independently applied inclusion and quality criteria and extracted findings. PROM domains, item content, and content coverage and relevance were determined for identified PROMs. Content validity was assessed against an empirically derived NMIBC-specific conceptual framework that includes 11 PRO domains and 19 sub-domains. Results Seventeen studies assessed PROs related to NMIBC and treatment impact. From these studies, 11 PROMs were iden- tified, including three generic, three cancer-specific, and five symptom-specific. None of the PROMs cover all PRO domains important in NMIBC as assessed against our conceptual framework. The EORTC QLQ-C30 plus the NMIBC24 module was best aligned to the conceptual model, but failed to represent six outcomes important to NMIBC patients. Conclusions Currently,
