  1. A comparison between the University of Washington Head and Neck Disease-Specific measure and the Medical short form 36, EORTC QOQ-C33 and EORTC Head and Neck 35.

    Article - En anglais

    The University of Washington Head and Neck Disease-Specific questionnaire (UW-QOL) is potentially a suitable routine measure of outcome in head and neck cancer because it is quick and simple for patients to complete and is easy to process.

    The aim of this study was to compare the UW-QOL with three validated instruments in a group of patients having primary surgery for oral cancer.

    Between May and December 1995,34 consecutive patients with previously untreated oral and oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma underwent primary surgery.

    Patients self-completed the following questionnaires : UW-QOL, Medical Outcomes Short Form 36 (SF-36), the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) QOQ-C33 and the EORTC Head and Neck (H & N35).

    Questionnaires were distributed at four time intervals : pre-operatively, and at 3,6 and 12 months.

    Patients were withdrawn if they developed recurrent disease. 29 patients agreed to participate in this prospective study and cross-sectional comparisons were made on baseline data and trends over time for longitudinal comparisons.

    This study emphasises the difficulties of one questionnaire to adequately evaluate quality of life.

    However, it would appear that the UW-QOL is a broad measure suitable for routine « low cost » assessment of disease-specific functional status.
