|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific||Other: quality-of-life assessment|
- Determine the scale structure, reliability, and validity of the QLQ-SAT32 patient satisfaction module in assessing the perception of the quality of care received in hospitals by patients with cancer.
- Determine the success of the QLQ-SAT32 patient satisfaction module when used with the QLQ-C30 core quality of life questionnaire, in terms of expanding on quality of life evaluation or providing information on treatment acceptability or preference of these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a descriptive, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to age (18 to 49 vs 50 and over) and the cancer therapy received in hospital (surgery vs chemotherapy).
Patients in all strata receive the QLQ-SAT32 and QLQ-C30 questionnaires, a debriefing questionnaire, and the Oberst patient satisfaction visual analog scale prior to hospital discharge. Patients complete the materials at home within 7 days of discharge. A group of 100 patients have a repeat QLQ-SAT32 module mailed to them to be completed within 7 days of receipt of first questionnaire.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 640-768 patients (160-192 per stratum) will be accrued for this study.
