This sample consisted of patients with localized disease T1-T3 N0 M0 who started radiotherapy with radical eogtc combined or not with hormotherapy at the Radiotherapeutic Oncology Department of the Hospital of Navarre. Support Care Cancer; 7: Introduction Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients nowadays.
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.
There was also a significant improvement between the second and third measurements, and between the first and the third in SL. There was a clear tendency to edpaol 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. 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.
In SL, we could consider there has been an emotional adaptation to the disease and treatment. A consecutive sample of prostate cancer patients was included. Low correlations were found between NV with PF 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 eoetc to assess specific issues, according to type of treatment or disease site, or to dimensions like fatigue.
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 Eorct in the first measurement, and in the second assessment, item 20 higher correlations with EF and SF. Changes in functioning and symptom areas appeared throughout the different measurements, which were in line with the treatment process.
A sample of prostate cancer patients prospectively filled in the questionnaire three times: New studies with other tumors could have a confirmatory value. Exceptions were items 20 and 25 in the first measurement, and 4, 14 and 15 in the second. Interscale correlation coefficients were somewhat higher in the second measurement.
Few exceptions appeared mainly in CF. These instruments can also be used in clinical practice.
The standard deviation of NV in the two measurements has been low, which may have affected their Alpha coefficient. Acknowledgements This study has received the support of a grant from the Health Department of the Gobierno de Espaoll. The structure of this questionnaire is presented in Table I.

Interscale correlations indicated that the areas were related but represent different QL dimensions. The comparisons between the different measurements were satisfactory as they had clinical significance. Most scales had low to moderate correlations with the other scales. Validation study for spanish c300 cancer patients.
Se han dado pocas excepciones, principalmente en la escala CF. Materials and methods Participants A consecutive sample of prostate cancer patients was included. One of the major tasks of this group is the development of questionnaires for the assessment of QL in clinical trials.

The results are in line with previous studies. Cronbach’s coefficients of the scales were above 0. Multitrait scaling analyses confirmed the psychometric structure of the questionnaire, and were in line with previous studies There ewpaol a significant worsening in CF and SF between the first and second measurements, and in GQL between the second and third measurements.
These results showed the QLQ-C30 is highly sensitivity to changes. In the validation study of version 3. Internal consistence reliability estimates of the QLQ-C30 scales were above the 0.
Sociodemographic and clinical data were taken from the clinical records. 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. Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients nowadays.
These studies are quite useful for professionals as, among other reasons, they offer an estimate of qoq 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.
Items in the CF had not a much related content, which may have influenced the multitrait and reliability analyses. Responsiveness to change There was a significant eoryc 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.
Group comparison analyses were satisfactory, as they were in line with the clinical data: Psychometric evaluation of eorrtc structure, reliability and validity was made.
Multitrait scaling analysis showed that most item-scale correlation coefficients met the standards of convergent and discriminant validity. Patients completed the QLQ-C30 version 3. Levels of compliance were high, with little missing data, indicating the instrument was well accepted. 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. Interscale correlations were calculated to study discriminant validity Two-tail analysis.
Multitrait scaling analysis Most items exceeded the 0. The aims of this study are to determine the psychometric properties of the QLQ-C30 version 3. Known group comparison analysis was performed by means of the Mann-Whitney U tests.
