Abstract

Review question/objective: The objective of the review will be to identify, assess and synthesize the evidence that examines the magnitude and scope of disability including impairments, activity limitations and participation restrictions associated with four main non-communicable diseases (NCDs): cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), cancers, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases. To systematically examine the magnitude of disability associated with CVDs, cancers, diabetes and chronic lung diseases, the questions that this review will specifically address are: 

What is the prevalence of disability related to each of the four NCDs (presented by country and NCD where possible)?What is the prevalence of co-existing diseases/conditions (comorbidity) in persons with disabilities related to the four NCDs?

To systematically examine the scope of disability associated with CVDs, cancers, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases, the questions that this review will address are:

What is the impact of disability on a person's life (measured using patient reported outcomes including quality of life measures)?What are the unmet needs in persons with disabilities related to the four NCDs?
