Introduction: Quality of life (QoL) measurements have been included in clinical trials as a relevant outcome variable; however, other psychological variables might have an impact on QoL.
Aim(s): To determine whether NET symptoms have a greater impact on QoL than disease severity; whether coping strategies influence QoL; and whether internal control beliefs in the potential control of cancer growth are associated with QoL.
Materials and methods: Seventy-four patients completed a web survey involving: QoL (EORTC C.30 and GI.NET21), a coping styles (Brief cope) and illness perception measurements. All questionnaires were counterbalanced.
