Abstract

We commend Colantuoni and colleagues for their review on
methods to compare functional outcomes in trials with high
mortality.1 This is important in people with advanced, life
limiting illnesses requiring palliative care.2 We have previously
found that 18% of participants in palliative care trials have
truncated data—for example, on quality of life—due to death.3
