Abstract

Carcinomas of the lung and esophagus are associated with significant disease and treatment related morbidity. Measuring patients’ self-perceived notion of their health-related quality of life (HRQOL), throughout the course of illness, is central to the delivery of comprehensive, patient-centered care. This article reviews commonly used HRQOL instruments in thoracic surgery and discusses the integral role of patient-reported outcomes (PROs) in comparative effectiveness research and prognostication in the realm of lung and esophageal cancer. We also highlight challenges and future directions for widespread implementation of PROs into clinical and research practice.
