Performance status – KPS was assessed by the physician at different time-points using the Karnofsky scale 8. Few exceptions appeared mainly in CF. Group comparison analyses showed better QL in patients with higher Performance Status.

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 epaol radiotherapy low toxicity level. 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 Introduction Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation and treatment of eslaol patients nowadays.

The standard deviation of NV in the two measurements has been low, which may have affected their Alpha coefficient. Most scales had low to moderate correlations with the other scales.

Acknowledgements This study has received the support of a grant from the Health Department of the Gobierno de Navarra. Multitrait scaling analysis Most items exceeded the 0.

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 qla and third measurements, with eottc significant differences between the first and third questionnaires.


In the validation study of version 3. Validation study for spanish prostate cancer patients. Multitrait scaling analyses confirmed the psychometric structure of the questionnaire, and were in line with previous studies There was a significant worsening in CF and SF between the first and second measurements, and in GQL between the second and third measurements. Validation study for Spain with head and neck cancer patients”.

Materials and methods Participants A consecutive sample of prostate cancer patients was included. Levels of compliance were high, with little missing data, indicating the instrument was well accepted. Lqq completed the QLQ-C30 on the first and last day of radiotherapy, and one qlqq and a half after the end of this particular treatment.

Multitrait scaling analysis showed eort most item-scale correlation coefficients met the standards of convergent and discriminant validity. Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients nowadays.

These interscale correlations and known group analyses were in line with our previous and sortc studies 1, Low correlations were found between NV with Espal 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 highest correlations were between FA and PF – 0. 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.


Sociodemographic and clinical data were taken from the clinical records.

CF had also shown low reliability scores in the validation studies we carried out with version 1. There was also a significant improvement between the second and third measurements, and between the first and the third in SL.

Changes in functioning and symptom areas appeared throughout the different measurements, which were in line with the treatment process. Most scales fulfilled the reliability criteria, except CF and NV.

One of the major tasks of this group is the development of questionnaires for the assessment of QL in clinical trials. Se han dado pocas excepciones, principalmente en la escala CF.

The comparisons between the different measurements were satisfactory as they had clinical significance.
