Item discriminant validity was successful in all analyses except in item 5 higher correlation with SF than with its own scaleitem 10 higher correlation fortc PF in the first measurement, and in the second assessment, item 20 higher correlations with EF and SF. Qlw han dado pocas excepciones, principalmente en la escala CF. The standard deviation of NV in the two measurements has been low, which may have affected their Alpha coefficient. In SL, we could consider there has been an emotional adaptation to the disease and 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.

v30 Items in the CF had not a much related content, which may have influenced the multitrait and reliability analyses. Psychometric evaluation of the structure, reliability and validity was made.

In the validation study of version 3. 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. Changes in functioning and symptom areas appeared throughout the different measurements, which were in line with the treatment process.


These interscale correlations and known group analyses were in line with our previous and other studies 1, Most scales fulfilled the reliability criteria, except CF and NV. There was a clear tendency to epaol worsening at the end of the treatment, with a recovery in most scales in the follow-up measurement that could be espaoo to radiotherapy low toxicity level. Interscale correlations were calculated to study discriminant validity Two-tail analysis. Low correlations were found between NV with PF The comparisons between the different measurements were satisfactory as they had clinical significance.

Multitrait scaling analysis showed that most item-scale correlation coefficients met the standards of convergent and discriminant validity. These three analyses were performed at the first and second assessments.

These results showed the QLQ-C30 is highly sensitivity to changes. 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.

A sample of prostate cancer patients prospectively filled in the questionnaire three times: Acknowledgements This study has received the support of a grant from the Health Department of the Gobierno de Navarra. Levels of compliance were high, with little missing data, indicating the instrument was well accepted.

These instruments can also be used in clinical practice. Sociodemographic and clinical data were taken from the clinical records.

Few exceptions appeared mainly in CF. The structure of this questionnaire is presented in Table I. Introduction Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients nowadays.

We compared subgroups based on KPS levels: Most scales had low to moderate correlations with the other scales. Support Care Cancer; 7: Responsiveness to change There was a significant worsening of the condition between the first and the second measurements in eorttc areas PF, PA, CO, DI, FAa significant improvement between the second and third measurements, with no significant differences between the first and third questionnaires. A consecutive sample of prostate cancer patients was included.

Group comparison analyses were satisfactory, as they were in line with the clinical data:
