When assessing health-related quality of life (HRQL), proxy assessments are sometimes necessary. A conceptual framework has been developed that delineates between 2 proxy perspectives: elicitation from the patient perspective (proxy-patient), or from the proxy’s perspective (proxy-proxy). There is limited appreciation for this difference in the literature, and extent to which these perspectives differ systematically is unclear. The aim of this study was to determine if proxy assessment of HRQL differs according to perspective in prostate cancer, and to identify any factors that explain differences. In this presentation A. Simon Pickard will speak about this study. This event was sponsored by the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health Department of Population Health Sciences.
