There was also a significant improvement between the second and third measurements, and between the first and the third in SL.
Levels of compliance were high, with little missing data, indicating the instrument was well accepted.
These three analyses were performed at the first and second assessments. There was a significant worsening in CF and SF between the first and second measurements, and in GQL between slq second and third measurements. The highest correlations were between FA and PF – 0. Changes in functioning and symptom areas d30 throughout the different measurements, which were in line with the treatment process. Se han dado pocas excepciones, principalmente en la escala CF.
New studies with other tumors could have a confirmatory espaaol. Acknowledgements This study has received the support of a grant from the Health Department of the Gobierno de Navarra. Validation study for spanish prostate cancer patients.
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.
Few exceptions appeared mainly in CF. Exceptions were items 20 and 25 in the first measurement, and 4, 14 and 15 in the second. The standard deviation of NV in the two measurements has been low, which may have affected their Alpha coefficient. One of the major tasks of this group is the development of questionnaires for the assessment of QL in clinical trials.
In the validation study of 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. 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.
Multitrait scaling analysis Most items exceeded the 0. Performance status – KPS was assessed by the physician at different time-points using the Karnofsky scale 8.
Materials and methods Participants A consecutive sample of prostate cancer patients was included.
We compared subgroups based on KPS levels: Interscale correlations indicated that the areas were related but represent different QL dimensions. Group comparison analyses showed better QL in patients with higher Performance Status.
CF had also shown low reliability scores in the validation studies we carried out with version 1. These instruments can also be used in clinical practice. A sample of prostate cancer patients prospectively filled espwol the questionnaire three times: 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 Most scales fulfilled the c300 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 the follow-up measurement that could be due to radiotherapy low toxicity level.
Sociodemographic and clinical data were taken from the clinical records.
This sample consisted of patients with localized disease T1-T3 N0 M0 who started radiotherapy with radical intention combined or not dspaol hormotherapy at the Radiotherapeutic Oncology Department of the Hospital of Navarre.
The results are in line with previous studies. Internal consistence reliability estimates of the QLQ-C30 scales were above the 0. Patients completed the QLQ-C30 version 3.
Interscale correlations were calculated to study discriminant validity Two-tail analysis. Most scales had low to moderate correlations with the other scales. Evaluation qlqq chemotherapeutic agents; ; Colombia University, New York, Psychometric evaluation of the structure, reliability and validity was made. These results showed the QLQ-C30 is highly sensitivity to changes.

These interscale correlations and known group analyses were in line with our previous and other studies 1, The comparisons between the different measurements were satisfactory as they had clinical significance. The structure of this questionnaire is presented in Table I.
Group comparison analyses were satisfactory, as they were in line with the clinical data: Introduction Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients nowadays. 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 Multitrait scaling analysis showed that most item-scale qla coefficients met the standards of convergent and discriminant validity.
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. A consecutive sample of prostate cancer patients was included. 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.
