Validation study for Spain with head and neck cancer patients”. Most scales had low to moderate correlations with the other scales. In SL, we could consider there has been an emotional adaptation to the disease and treatment.
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.
These instruments can also be used in clinical practice.

Multitrait scaling analysis Most items exceeded the 0. There was also a significant improvement between the second and q,q measurements, and between the first and the third in SL.
Acknowledgements This study has received the support of a grant from the Health Department of the Gobierno de Navarra. Group comparison analyses were satisfactory, as they were in line with the clinical data: Cronbach’s coefficients of the scales were above 0. These interscale correlations and eort group analyses 3c0 in line with our previous and other studies 1, Group comparison analyses showed better QL in patients with higher Performance Status. Interscale correlation coefficients were eeortc higher in the second measurement.
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.
The scores in the QLQ-C30 [ table 3 ] were in line with, and just a bit better than the ones recorded in the reference manual Exceptions were items 20 and 25 in the first measurement, and 4, 14 and 15 in the second. Patients completed the QLQ-C30 version 3.
The standard deviation of NV in the two measurements has been low, which may have affected their Alpha coefficient. 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. Levels of compliance were high, with little missing data, indicating the instrument was well accepted.
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. Most scales fulfilled the reliability criteria, except CF and NV.
Sociodemographic and clinical data were taken from the clinical records. In the validation study of version 3. Materials and methods Participants A consecutive sample of prostate cancer patients was included. Interscale correlations were calculated to study discriminant validity Two-tail analysis.
The aims of this study are to determine the psychometric properties of the QLQ-C30 version 3. These results showed the QLQ-C30 is highly sensitivity to changes. Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients nowadays.
There was a significant worsening in CF and SF between the first and second measurements, and in GQL between the second and third measurements. Changes in functioning and symptom areas appeared throughout the different measurements, which were in line with the treatment process.
qqlq The results are in line with previous studies. CF had also shown low reliability scores in the validation studies we carried out with version 1. Item discriminant validity wortc 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. New studies with other tumors could have a confirmatory value. Items in the CF had not a much related content, which may have influenced the multitrait and reliability analyses.

Introduction Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients nowadays. Psychometric evaluation of the structure, reliability and validity was made. The comparisons between the different measurements were satisfactory as they had clinical significance.
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.
Low correlations were found between NV with PF 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. Interscale correlations indicated that the areas were related but represent different QL dimensions. We compared subgroups based on KPS levels: 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.
The highest correlations were between FA and PF – 0. Evaluation of chemotherapeutic agents; ; Colombia University, New York, Few exceptions appeared mainly in CF. Support Care Cancer; 7: Se han dado pocas excepciones, principalmente en la escala CF.
Espaool scaling analyses confirmed the psychometric structure of the questionnaire, and were in line with previous studies Most scales had low to moderate eprtc. 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.
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.
