Thesis

Development of clinical prediction rules for reducing delays in the diagnosis of multiple myeloma

Abstract:

Background

Multiple myeloma is a type of blood cancer which starts at the bone marrow. Fifty percent of patients have more than three consultations in primary care before being referred to secondary care. This implies that myeloma patients can experience delays in the diagnosis which could contribute to the relatively poor prognosis. The aim of the thesis was to develop clinical prediction rules that could potentially reduce the time to diagnosis of myeloma patients.
