Abstract

TURBT is a common operation within urology. There are a wide range of side effects experienced. Very often, there is no standardised pathway as part of follow-up. Patient reported outcome measures for bladder cancer are reviewed.

A framework analysis approach was used to analyse tabulated results (Guest 2012). Transcripts were reviewed several times by the research team and using a highlighter in a tabulated approach, codes and recurrent themes were identified before the final analysis was drawn. After research team familiarization with data and transcripts, the initial codes were generated manually, using a framework analysis (Braun 2006). All codes relating to the topic of surgery and bladder cancer were identified. Within these codes the over-arching themes were identified and named.

Transcripts were then reviewed for evidence for and against these codes:

Erectile dysfunction

Age related

Side effects post op

Psychological impact from ED

Support needed with impact of operation on general health
