Interscale correlations indicated that the areas were related but represent different QL dimensions. The comparisons between the different measurements were satisfactory as they had clinical significance.

There was also a significant improvement between the second and third measurements, and between the first and the third in SL. Validation study for Spain with head and neck cancer patients”.

Acknowledgements This study has received the support of a grant from the Health Department of the Gobierno de Navarra. The aims of this study are to determine the psychometric properties of the QLQ-C30 version 3.

Most scales had low to moderate inter-correlations. There was a significant worsening in CF and SF between the first and second measurements, and in GQL between the second and third measurements.

Exceptions were items 20 and 25 in the first measurement, and 4, 14 and 15 in the second. This QL group has oertc a combined assessment system composed of a generic core questionnaire, EORTC QLQ-C30, which evaluates issues common to different eortx 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.

Group comparison analyses showed better QL in patients with higher Performance Status. Performance status – KPS was assessed by the physician eslaol different time-points using the Karnofsky scale 8. The structure of this questionnaire is presented in Table I.

These results showed the QLQ-C30 is highly sensitivity to changes. 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.

Se han dado pocas excepciones, principalmente en la escala CF. Responsiveness to change There was a significant worsening of espoal 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.

Few exceptions appeared mainly in CF. Support Care Cancer; 7: We compared subgroups based on KPS levels: 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. Group comparison analyses were satisfactory, as they were in line with the clinical espqol In the validation study of version 3.

This study has received the support of a grant from the Health Department espaaol the Gobierno de Navarra. 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. Most scales had low to moderate correlations with the other scales.

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.

Materials and methods Participants A consecutive sample of prostate cancer patients was espaok. A consecutive sample of prostate cancer patients was included.

New studies with other tumors could have a confirmatory value. This sample consisted of patients with localized disease T1-T3 N0 M0 who started radiotherapy with radical intention combined or not espqol hormotherapy at the Radiotherapeutic Oncology Department of the Hospital of Navarre.

Levels qoq compliance were high, with little missing data, slq the instrument was well accepted. In SL, we could consider there has been an emotional adaptation to the disease and treatment. Validation study for spanish prostate cancer patients. Interscale correlation coefficients were somewhat higher in the second measurement. Patients completed the QLQ-C30 version 3.

Multitrait scaling analyses confirmed the psychometric structure of the questionnaire, and were in line with previous studies Internal consistence reliability estimates of the QLQ-C30 scales were above the 0.

A sample of prostate cancer patients prospectively filled in the questionnaire three times: Sociodemographic and clinical data were taken from the clinical records.

Multitrait scaling analysis Most items exceeded the 0. 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. The standard deviation of NV in the two measurements has epsaol low, which may have affected their Alpha coefficient. Psychometric evaluation of the structure, reliability and validity was made. These studies are quite useful for professionals as, among other reasons, they offer an qqlq 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.

CF had also shown low reliability scores in the validation studies we carried out with version 1.

Evaluation of chemotherapeutic agents; ; Colombia University, New York, These three analyses were performed at the first and second assessments. Multitrait scaling analysis showed that most item-scale correlation coefficients met the standards of convergent and discriminant validity. 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.

These interscale correlations and known group analyses were in line with our previous and other studies 1,espakl Items c03 the CF had not a much related content, which may have influenced the multitrait and reliability analyses.
