Quality of life is appreciated whith the help of two methods (analogic scale and quality of life questionnaire) and results can be compare.
Questionnaire considers 3 aspects of quality of life : physical, social and psychological disturbances.
Considering 37 eligibled patients, after one year, quality of life coefficient is 0.84 : one year of survival is equal to 10 months of well-being.
Results according to the 2 evaluation means are not significantly different.
The 2 methods can be used without limits, provided that you defined the precision needed for the study : having a 3 dimensional results, or results on only one dimension.
Nevertheless, to assess quality of life every week seems not to be appropriated.
