DONOSIMO NAJNOVIJI BILTEN ALAN-A (ACUTE LEUKEMIA ADVOCATES NETWORK)
Welcome to the first issue of the 2023 newsletters by ALAN. We aim to bring you updates from across the acute leukemia community, whilst keeping you informed on work and projects our side.
Quality of life in patients with acute leukemia
In 2019, ALAN ran a global survey to determine which factors are most associated with poor quality of life (QoL) in patients with acute leukemia and to determine key issues and unmet needs.
Our data show that younger patients, women and those with low income reported worse QoL than their counterparts. Feeling of social isolation and barriers to physical activity were noted to be most impactful issues.
When treating patients with acute leukemia, physicians should keep in mind the importance of social functioning and connect patients to resourceful and applicable patient organisations.
