Introduction Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients nowadays. Multitrait scaling analysis Most items exceeded the 0. Group comparison analyses were satisfactory, as they were in line with the clinical data: Most scales had low to moderate correlations with the other scales. New studies with other tumors could have a confirmatory value.
A consecutive sample of prostate cancer patients was included.
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 These instruments can also be used in clinical practice.

Patients completed eotc QLQ-C30 version 3. 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. 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.
There was a significant worsening in CF and SF between the first and second measurements, and in GQL between the second and third measurements. Sociodemographic and clinical data were taken from the clinical records. The aims of this study are to determine the psychometric properties of the Eortcc version 3.

We compared subgroups based on KPS levels: These three analyses were performed at the first and second assessments. Changes in functioning and symptom areas appeared throughout the different measurements, which were in line with the treatment process. Exceptions were items 20 and 25 in the first measurement, and 4, 14 and 15 in the second. Levels of compliance were high, with little missing data, indicating the instrument was well accepted.
The standard deviation of NV in the two measurements has been low, which may have affected their Alpha coefficient. 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.
Few exceptions appeared mainly in CF.
The highest correlations were between FA and PF – 0. 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 inter-correlations.
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.
Low correlations were found between Eorhc with PF Se han dado pocas excepciones, principalmente en la escala CF. Support Care Cancer; 7: Validation study for spanish prostate cancer patients.
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.
Items in the CF had not a eotc related content, which may have influenced the multitrait and reliability analyses.
Multitrait scaling analysis showed that most item-scale correlation coefficients met the standards of convergent and discriminant validity. 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 Patients’ characteristics and compliance patients from a total of that were addressed filled in the first questionnaire, did the second espwol and answered the third one. Evaluation of chemotherapeutic agents; ; Colombia University, New York, Group comparison analyses showed better QL in patients with eorttc Performance Status.
Most scales fulfilled the reliability criteria, except CF and NV. There was a clear tendency to a worsening at the end of the treatment, with a recovery in most scales in esapol follow-up measurement that could be due to radiotherapy low toxicity level. Qq status – KPS was assessed by the physician at different time-points using the Karnofsky scale 8. The structure of this questionnaire is presented in Table I. Cronbach’s coefficients of the scales were above 0. Results Patients’ characteristics and compliance patients from a total of that were addressed filled in wlq first questionnaire, did the second one and answered the third one.
