The group focuses on the health-related quality of life, psychosocial burden and unmet needs in neuro-oncological patients. Our key question is „how do the patients perceive their disease and our therapy?” We could recently show that neuro-oncological patients are highly burdened independent of their tumor entity. Their unmet needs do change during the disease trajectory and patients need a specific assessment due to their unique symptom profile. Therefore, we currently evaluate alternative assessment methods, e. g. the direct assessment of unmet needs during the patient-doctor consultation in high-grade glioma patients, as well as the development of an app-based assessment of health-related quality of life. Furthermore, we work on the development of new health care models, e.g. prehabilitation in glioblastoma patients.
