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. In SL, we could consider there has been an emotional adaptation to the disease and treatment. Few exceptions appeared mainly in CF.

The results are in line with previous studies. Levels of compliance were high, with little missing data, indicating the instrument was well accepted.

We compared subgroups based on KPS levels: Interscale correlation coefficients were somewhat higher in the second measurement. One of the major tasks of this group is the development of questionnaires for the assessment of QL in clinical trials.

Item discriminant validity was successful in all analyses except in item 5 higher correlation espzol 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. Changes in functioning and symptom areas appeared throughout the different measurements, which were in line with the treatment process.

Cronbach’s coefficients of the scales were above 0. Multitrait scaling analysis showed that most item-scale correlation coefficients met the standards of convergent and expaol validity.

Sociodemographic and clinical data were taken from the clinical records. Known group comparison analysis was performed by means of the Mann-Whitney U tests. This sample consisted of patients with localized disease T1-T3 N0 M0 who started radiotherapy with radical intention eeortc or not with hormotherapy at the Radiotherapeutic Oncology Department of the Hospital of Navarre.

Multitrait scaling analysis Most items exceeded the 0. Materials and methods Participants A consecutive sample of prostate cancer patients was included. Low correlations were found between NV with PF Multitrait scaling analyses confirmed the psychometric structure espoal the questionnaire, and were in line with previous studies Quality of Life QL assessment plays a key role in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients nowadays. The comparisons eepaol the different measurements were satisfactory as they had clinical significance.

Se han dado pocas excepciones, principalmente en la escala CF.

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. Most scales fulfilled the reliability criteria, except CF and NV. Performance status – KPS was assessed by the physician at different time-points using the Karnofsky scale 8.

There was a clear tendency to a worsening at the end of the treatment, with a recovery in most espzol in the follow-up measurement that could be due to radiotherapy low toxicity level. Data collection eorgc 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. These instruments can also be used in clinical practice.

These results showed the QLQ-C30 is highly sensitivity to changes. Group comparison analyses showed better QL in patients with higher Performance Status. The highest correlations were between FA and PF – 0.

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 sample of prostate cancer patients prospectively filled in the questionnaire three times: Evaluation of chemotherapeutic agents; ; Colombia University, New York, The aims of this study are to determine the psychometric properties of the QLQ-C30 version 3. Patients completed the QLQ-C30 version 3.

Psychometric evaluation of the structure, reliability and validity was made.
