The scientific work "Information Patients With Melanoma Spontaneously Report About Health-Related Quality of Life on Web-Based Forums: Case Study", with the support of partners of iToBoS project, has been published.
There is a general agreement on the importance of health-related quality of life (HRQoL). This type of information is becoming increasingly important for the value assessment of health technology assessment agencies in evaluating the benefits of new health technologies, including medicines. However, HRQoL data are often limited, and additional sources that provide this type of information may be helpful.
The objective is to identify the HRQoL topics important to patients with melanoma based on web-based discussions on public social media forums.
