Abstract

The Cannabis Quality of Life survey on My Compassion is used to assess how you feel and function as a result of your health and cannabis treatment. The questions in this survey are specific to your health. This is done because cancer, its symptoms and cancer treatments you take may impact your life in different ways while utilizing cannabis therapies. Measuring cancer by other markers like laboratory values or functional rating scales is important to understand the progression of cancer, but these markers may not tell the patients’ whole story. A patient may have relatively mild effect but it could be profound when a patient is affected with a more severe type of cancer. The Cannabis Quality of Life survey is used to help better understand the impact of cannabis on cancer on a patient's overall well-being.
