All patients were requested to complete two quality of life questionnaires – the EORTC Core Quality of Life questionnaire QLQ-C30 and the QLQ-GINET21 – at baseline, and at 3 and 6 months post-baseline; the psychometric properties of the questionnaire were then analysed.

Discriminant validity was confirmed, with values
