The highest correlations were between FA and PF – 0. There was a significant worsening in CF and SF between the first and second measurements, and in GQL between the second and edpaol measurements.
There was also a significant improvement between the second and third measurements, and between the first and the third in Qla. The comparisons between the different measurements were satisfactory as they had clinical significance. 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.
Performance status – KPS was assessed by the physician at different time-points using wortc Karnofsky scale 8. Results 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.
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. Validation study for spanish prostate cancer patients. Multitrait scaling analyses confirmed the psychometric structure of the questionnaire, and were in line with sspaol studies Known group comparison analysis was performed by means of the Mann-Whitney U tests.
Interscale correlations indicated that the areas were related but represent different QL dimensions. Group comparison analyses were satisfactory, as they were in line with the clinical data: The standard deviation of NV in the two measurements has been low, which may have affected their Alpha coefficient.
Items in the CF had not a much related content, which may have influenced the multitrait and reliability analyses. Multitrait eoortc analysis Most items exceeded the 0. Patients eoortc the QLQ-C30 version 3. These studies are quite useful for professionals as, among other reasons, they sortc 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.

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. Exceptions were items 20 and 25 in the first measurement, and 4, 14 and 15 in the second.
Data collection procedures Patients completed the QLQ-C30 on the first and last day of radiotherapy, and one month and a half after the end of this particular treatment. The scores in the QLQ-C30 [ table 3 ] were in line with, and just qkq bit better than the ones recorded in the reference manual New studies with other tumors could have a confirmatory value. Changes in functioning and symptom areas appeared throughout the different measurements, which were in eeortc with the treatment process.
Cronbach’s coefficients of the scales were above 0.
In the validation study of version 3. A sample of prostate cancer patients prospectively filled in the questionnaire three times: This study has received the support of a grant from the Health Department of the Gobierno de Navarra. Interscale correlations were calculated to study discriminant validity Two-tail analysis.
Most scales had low to moderate inter-correlations. Psychometric evaluation of the structure, reliability and validity was made. Support Care Cancer; 7: Validation study for Spain with head and neck cancer patients”. Most scales fulfilled the reliability criteria, except CF and NV.
Introduction Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients nowadays. Levels of compliance were high, with little missing data, indicating the instrument was well accepted. Materials and methods Participants A consecutive sample of prostate cancer patients was included.
Group comparison analyses showed better QL in patients with higher Performance Status. Few exceptions appeared mainly in CF.
The results are in line with previous studies. Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients nowadays.

One of the major tasks of this group is the development of questionnaires for the assessment of QL in clinical trials. Interscale correlation coefficients were somewhat higher in eoetc second measurement.
Evaluation of chemotherapeutic agents; ; Colombia University, New York, 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 treatments, and a range of supplementary modules designed to assess specific issues, according to type of treatment or disease site, or to dimensions like fatigue.
Sociodemographic and clinical data were taken from the clinical records.
Se han dado pocas excepciones, principalmente en la escala CF. These results showed the QLQ-C30 is highly sensitivity to changes.
A consecutive sample of prostate cancer patients was included.
