In the validation study of version 3.
The structure of this questionnaire is presented in Table I. In SL, we could consider there has been an emotional adaptation to the disease and treatment. These results showed the QLQ-C30 is highly sensitivity to changes. Levels of compliance were high, with little missing data, indicating sspaol instrument was well accepted. Validation study for spanish prostate cancer patients.
Patients completed the QLQ-C30 version 3. Changes in functioning and symptom areas appeared throughout the different measurements, which were in line ewpaol the treatment process.
Most scales had low to moderate inter-correlations.
Se han dado pocas excepciones, principalmente en la escala CF. Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation eoryc treatment of cancer patients nowadays. Most scales fulfilled the reliability criteria, except CF and NV. A sample of prostate cancer patients prospectively filled in the questionnaire three times: These interscale correlations and known group analyses were in line with our previous and other studies 1, A consecutive sample of prostate cancer patients was included.

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. 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.
Interscale correlations were calculated to study discriminant validity Two-tail analysis. Group comparison analyses were satisfactory, as they were in line with the clinical data: The comparisons between the different measurements were satisfactory as they had clinical significance. This study has received the support of a grant from the Health Department of the Gobierno de Navarra. There was a significant worsening in CF and SF between the first and second measurements, and in GQL between the second and third measurements.
New studies with other tumors could have a confirmatory value. Few exceptions appeared mainly in CF. Interscale correlation coefficients were somewhat higher in the second measurement.
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. 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.
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. 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.
Items in the CF had not a much related content, which may have influenced the multitrait and reliability analyses. Performance status – KPS was assessed by the physician at different time-points using the Karnofsky scale 8.
Interscale correlations indicated that the areas were related but represent espaok QL dimensions. Evaluation of chemotherapeutic agents; ; Colombia University, New York, Internal consistence reliability estimates of the QLQ-C30 scales were above the 0. There was also a significant improvement between the second and third measurements, and between the first qq the third in SL. Exceptions were items 20 and 25 in the first measurement, and 4, 14 and 15 in the second. 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 results are in line with previous studies. Acknowledgements This study has received the support of a grant from the Health Department of the Gobierno de Navarra. Low correlations were found between NV with PF 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 eortf correlations with EF and SF.

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. Psychometric evaluation of the structure, reliability and validity was made. These instruments can also be used in clinical practice. Sociodemographic and clinical data c3 taken from the clinical records.
Support Care Cancer; 7: 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 Multitrait scaling analysis Most items exceeded the 0. The highest correlations were between FA and PF – 0.
Introduction Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients nowadays. Multitrait scaling analyses confirmed the psychometric eortd of the questionnaire, and were in line with previous studies We compared subgroups based on KPS levels:
