  1. The functional assessment of cancer therapy scale : development and validation of the general measure.

    Article - En anglais


    We developed and validated a brief, yet sensitive, 33-item general cancer quality-of-life (QL) meausre for evaluating patients receiving cancer treatment, called the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy (FACT) scale.

    Methods and Results

    The five-phase validation process involved 854 patients with cancer and 15 oncology specialists.

    The initial pool of 370 overlapping items for breast, lung, and colorectal cancer was generated by open-ended interview with patients experienced with the symptoms of cancer and oncology professionals.

    Using preselected criteria, items were reduced to a 38-item general version.
