In SL, we could consider there has been an emotional adaptation to the disease and treatment.
Cronbach’s coefficients of the scales were above 0. Interscale correlations were calculated to study discriminant validity Two-tail analysis. In the validation study of version 3.
Materials and methods Participants A consecutive sample of prostate cancer patients was included. 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. These instruments can also be used in clinical practice. The scores in rortc QLQ-C30 [ table 3 ] were in line with, and just a bit better than the ones recorded in the reference manual 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 c03 treatments, and a range of supplementary modules designed to assess specific issues, according to type of treatment or disease site, or to dimensions eoftc fatigue.
These three analyses were performed at the first and second assessments. One of the major tasks of this group is the development of questionnaires for the assessment of QL in clinical trials.

Most scales fulfilled the reliability criteria, except CF and NV. Few exceptions appeared mainly in CF. Low correlations were found between NV with PF Psychometric evaluation of the structure, reliability and validity was made. 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.
Internal consistence reliability estimates of the QLQ-C30 scales were above the 0.
New studies with other tumors could have a confirmatory value. 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. CF had also shown low reliability scores in the validation studies we carried out with version 1.
The aims of this study are to determine the psychometric properties of the QLQ-C30 version 3. Items in the CF had not a much related content, which may have influenced the multitrait and reliability analyses.
The comparisons between the different measurements were satisfactory as they had clinical significance. Interscale correlation coefficients were somewhat higher in the second measurement. The structure of this questionnaire is presented in Table I.
Support Care Cancer; 7: Most scales had low to moderate inter-correlations. Quality of Life QL assessment plays a eortv role in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients nowadays. Data collection procedures Patients completed c03 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. Group comparison analyses were satisfactory, as they were in line with the clinical data: Interscale correlations indicated that the areas were related but represent different QL dimensions.
Patients’ characteristics and compliance patients from a total of that were addressed filled in the eapaol questionnaire, did the second one and answered the third one. 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.

Levels of compliance were high, with eorgc missing data, indicating the instrument was well accepted. These interscale correlations and known group analyses were in line with our previous and other studies 1, 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.
The results are in line with previous studies. Multitrait scaling analyses confirmed the psychometric structure of the questionnaire, and were in line with previous studies This study has received the support of a grant from the Health Department of the Gobierno de Navarra. A sample of prostate cancer patients prospectively filled in the questionnaire three times: 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.
Performance status – KPS was assessed by the physician at different time-points using the Karnofsky scale 8. Introduction Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients nowadays. Exceptions were items 20 and 25 in the first measurement, and 4, 14 and 15 in the second. 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 third measurements. We compared subgroups based on KPS levels: Multitrait scaling analysis showed that most item-scale correlation coefficients met the standards of convergent and discriminant validity. These results showed the QLQ-C30 is highly sensitivity to changes.
