Description

The EORTC QLQ-C30 is a questionnaire developed to assess the quality of life of cancer patients. It is supplemented by disease-specific modules for many cancer types.

Abstract

In a study of 95 cancer patients and the employment of the EORTC QLQ-C30, the patient's self assessment and an observer's rating of the patient's open-ended responses were measured. The agreement between patients' and observers' ratings was high (median kappa = 0.85, range 0.49-1.00). For more psychometric values, please refer to this article: Groenvold M, Klee MC, Sprangers MA, Aaronson NK. Validation of the EORTC QLQ-C30 quality of life questionnaire through combined qualitative and quantitative assessment of patient-observer agreement. J Clin Epidemiol. 1997 Apr;50(4):441-50. PubMed PMID: 9179103.
