This QL group has created a combined assessment system composed of a generic core questionnaire, EORTC QLQ-C30, which evaluates issues common to different cancer sites and espaoll, and a range of supplementary modules designed to assess specific issues, according to type of treatment or disease site, or to dimensions like fatigue.
Validation study for spanish prostate cancer patients. Low correlations were found between NV with PF In the validation study of version 3. These results showed the QLQ-C30 is highly sensitivity to changes. Validation study for Spain with head and neck cancer patients”.
This study has received the support of a grant from the Health Department of the Gobierno de Navarra. Interscale correlation coefficients were somewhat higher in the second measurement.
These three analyses were performed at the first and second assessments. There was also a significant improvement between the second and third measurements, and between the first and the third in SL.
These studies are quite useful for professionals as, among other reasons, they offer an estimate of the QL values that could be expected in each country for different groups of patients, and also, because they explore if the QLQ-C30 has a good psychometric functioning when used with specific disease sites and stages.
Performance status – KPS was assessed by the physician at different time-points using the Karnofsky scale 8. There was a clear tendency to a worsening at the end of the treatment, with a recovery in most scales in the follow-up measurement that could be due to radiotherapy low toxicity level.
Group comparison analyses were satisfactory, as they were in line with the clinical data: There was a significant worsening in CF and SF between the first and second measurements, and in GQL between the second and third measurements. Few errors appeared, and they were mainly related to the cognitive functioning scale, as in our previous validation and in the Zhao and Kanda 16 studies.
CF had also shown low reliability scores in the validation studies we carried out with version 1. Patients’ characteristics and compliance patients from a total of that were addressed filled in the first questionnaire, did the second one and answered the third one.
Multitrait scaling analysis Most items exceeded the 0. One of the major tasks of this group is the development of questionnaires for the assessment of QL in clinical trials.
The highest correlations were between FA and PF – 0.
Most scales fulfilled the reliability criteria, except CF and NV. Sociodemographic and clinical data were taken from the clinical records.
Evaluation of chemotherapeutic agents; ; Colombia University, New York, The comparisons between the different measurements were satisfactory as they had clinical significance. These instruments can also be used in clinical practice.
Changes in functioning and symptom areas appeared throughout the different measurements, which were in line with the treatment process. Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients nowadays. Support Care Cancer; 7: Acknowledgements This study has received the support of a grant from the Health Department of the Gobierno de Navarra.
Data collection procedures Qllq completed the QLQ-C30 on the first and last day of epaol, and one month and a half after the end of this particular treatment. Few exceptions appeared mainly in CF. Item discriminant validity was successful in all analyses except in item 5 higher correlation with SF than with its own scaleitem 10 higher correlation with PF in the first measurement, and in the second assessment, item 20 higher correlations with EF and SF.
Cronbach’s coefficients of the scales were above 0. Known group comparison analysis was performed by means of the Mann-Whitney U tests.

A consecutive sample of c3 cancer patients was included. Internal consistence reliability estimates of the QLQ-C30 scales were above the 0. Most scales had low to moderate correlations with the other scales. Introduction Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients nowadays. This sample consisted of patients with localized disease T1-T3 N0 M0 who started radiotherapy with radical intention combined or not with hormotherapy at the Radiotherapeutic Oncology Department of the Hospital of Navarre.
Responsiveness to change There was a significant worsening of the condition between the first and the second measurements in five areas PF, PA, CO, DI, FAa significant improvement between the second and third measurements, with no significant differences between the first and third questionnaires. Interscale correlations indicated that the areas were related but represent different QL dimensions.

The structure of this questionnaire is presented in Table I. Group comparison analyses showed better QL in patients with higher Performance Status. Materials and methods Participants A consecutive sample of prostate cancer patients was included. Multitrait scaling analysis showed that most item-scale correlation coefficients met the standards of convergent and discriminant validity. A sample of prostate cancer patients prospectively filled in the questionnaire three times: We compared subgroups based on KPS levels: Items in the CF had not a much related content, which may have influenced the multitrait and reliability analyses.
The aims of this study are to determine the psychometric properties of the QLQ-C30 version 3. New studies with other tumors could have a confirmatory value.
Levels of compliance were high, with little missing data, indicating the instrument was well accepted. Most scales had low to moderate inter-correlations. These interscale correlations and known group analyses were in line with our previous and other studies 1, Exceptions were items 20 and 25 in the first measurement, and 4, 14 and 15 in the second. Multitrait scaling analyses confirmed the psychometric structure of the questionnaire, and were in line with previous studies The standard deviation of NV in the two measurements has been low, which may have qqlq their Alpha coefficient.
