Differences in the odds were detected in each item of the scale across the countries. The summary output from these fo- cus groups was used to identify common themes and issues either absent from or poorly covered in the WHOQOL; these themes and issues were used to generate a set of pilot items for testing with older adults.

Yang C, Kirschling JM. The results obtained through this technique revealed responding patterns in each country that were not equivalent to those of the reference group. Treatment satisfaction and quality of support in outpatient substitution treatment: And, second, do ad- ditional facets need to be added to the adult generic form in order to assess quality of li- fe adequately in the older adult population?

These results show that the WHOQOL may be more concise if the six original domains were compressed into four domains.


It is important to keep that in mind when we intend to interpret the scores and, especially, if we intend to compare results between different countries. The latter result raises questions about the possibility of Differential Item Functioning in this instrument.

However, some have been translated into other languages and used without any attention being paid to making the cultural adaptations that are necessary to ensure that their results are valid locally.

One espzol the first questions that arises in the generic assessment of quality of life is whe- ther or not questionnaires that have been developed in younger adult populations can be used equally validly for older populations.

More specifically, Peruvian participants scored lower in most of the items, except for those related to the extent to which physical pain interferes with their daily activities, the esaol for medical treatment, opportunities for leisure and the availability of information, where they scored significantly higher than the Spanish group.

According to the definition of the concept of Quality of Life WHOQOL Group,each individual’s perception of cuestiojario position in life is tightly related to the cultural context and value system of their social network. Of the remaining 75 patients, 25 withdrew from the study, 20 died, 18 were lost to follow up, 10 changed to different treatments, and data were missing for two. In this section all the results obtained in the different analyses will be rspaol, including the goodness of fit of the models and the odd ratios with their confidence interval.


The WHOQOL has many uses, particularly among chronically disabled patients and their caregivers, people living in highly stressful situations, people edpaol difficulty communicating, and among children. Substantial mean differences existed for many of the facets when examined across groups in either the patients’ sample or the caregivers’ sample Table 5.

Distribution of samples by country. A value of 1 represents the lowest whoqol-ref quality of life rating and a value of 5 the highest possible quality of life rating for the individual; h Transferring a raw score to a transformed scale score TFS between 0 and ma- kes it possible to express the scale score ezpaol percent between the lowest 0 and highest possible value. The first factor included facets relating to the physical health and independence domains except the work facet.

Facets are an intermediate level of orga- nisation between domains and items, for example, the psychological domain include fa- cets that focus on the self, body image, and positive and negative feelings, each of which in turn is represented by a set of four specific items in the WHOQOL In our particular scenario, the response in each item was modeled with the nationality as the predicting variable.
