Title: Quality of life of patients after autologous stem cell transplantation in cancer patients


Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) has for many years prolonged life to those suffering from, among others, neoplastic diseases of the hematopoietic system and improves the quality of life (QOL).The aim of the study was the subjective assessment of quality of life of patients made at least one year after ASCT in the course of haematologic malignancies.The study was conducted in 2010-2011 in the group of 55 patients after ASCT and 112 matched controls from a group of healthy individuals. The method that was used was the method of diagnostic survey. The tools used in the study were: a generalquestionnaire to assess the quality of life of chronically ill (FACT-G), sense of coherence questionnaire (SOC-29), a proprietary questionnaire on socio-demographic data, as well as the effects of the therapy and the Mini-MAC scale that allows researching the process of adaptation to mental illness.The following results were obtained: the quality of life of patients after ASCT did not differ from the QOL in the control group. Health problems as a result of the treatment decreased the quality of life of patients after ASCT (p<0.001). A higher degree of coherence was associated with higher perceived quality of life of patients after ASCT (R²=0.23; P<0.01), while accepting the destructive strategies to cope with cancer decreased QOL (R²=0.28; P<0.001). Socio-demographic variables, ps ; ychosocial factors and the time passed from the transplant of hematopoietic stem cells did not affect the assessment of subjective quality of life of people after ASCT.
