Glioma patients in outpatient care - optimization of psychosocial care in neuro-oncological patients (GLIOPT)

Patients with brain tumors often suffer from high psychosocial stress and have a great need for support in terms of social-legal counseling, rehabilitation, psychological support and palliative medical aspects. However, they are not always able to indicate this burden and need by means of a questionnaire.

This cluster-randomized multicenter questionnaire is therefore intended to answer the following question: Is the proportion of psychosocially burdened glioma patients receiving psychosocial care higher when the psychosocial burden is determined in a physician interview compared to screening by questionnaires?

Working hypothesis: In a survey on the burden, which is conducted directly by treating physicians and in which the physicians talk to the patients, more psychosocially burdened glioma patients are correctly identified and provided with care than in a survey by questionnaire.
