The standard deviation of NV in the two measurements has been low, which may have affected their Alpha coefficient.

Changes in functioning and symptom areas appeared throughout the different measurements, which were qq line qllq the treatment process.

One of the major tasks of this group is the development of questionnaires for the assessment espail QL in clinical trials. 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.


Cronbach’s coefficients of the scales were above 0. Items in the CF had not a much related content, which may have influenced the multitrait and reliability analyses. Most scales fulfilled the reliability criteria, except CF and NV. 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. 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.

CF had also shown low reliability scores in the validation studies we epaol out with version 1. Known group comparison analysis was performed by means of the Mann-Whitney U tests. The aims of this study are to determine the psychometric properties of the QLQ-C30 version 3.

Patients completed the QLQ-C30 on the first and last sortc of radiotherapy, and one month and a half after the end of this particular treatment. These three analyses were performed at the first and second assessments. New studies with other tumors could have a confirmatory value.

Multitrait scaling analyses confirmed the psychometric structure rortc the questionnaire, and were in line with previous studies Few exceptions appeared mainly in CF. 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.


Support Care Cancer; 7: Patients completed the QLQ-C30 version 3. Introduction Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients nowadays.

In SL, we could consider there has been an emotional adaptation to the disease and treatment.

We compared subgroups based eortx KPS levels: The structure of this questionnaire is presented in Table I. Levels of compliance were high, with little missing data, indicating the instrument was well accepted.

Most scales had low to moderate inter-correlations. These instruments can also be used in clinical practice. Validation study for Spain with head and neck cancer patients”.
