Introduction: Children’s quality of life evaluation has specific methodological aspects. Objective: To examine the psychometric properties of the Portuguese version of the Child Quality of Life Systemic Inventory (CQLSI), which is based on an innovative conceptual and methodological approach to quality of life self-assessment, namely by being interactive and playful, having a psychometry which operates several scores and allowing an analysis of each domain of life. Methods: 120 Portuguese children, from 8 to 12 years old. Results: Internal consistency of the four scores of the CQLSI (State, Goal, Rank and Gap) is satisfactory; all scores have their own specificity. Data show convergent validity. On the other hand, no satisfactory factorial structure was found. Conclusion: Feasibility and psychometric adequacy of the CQLSI Portuguese version seems demonstrated. [less ▲]

This study approaches the question of quality of life measure in paediatric oncology. The main aim is to compare the quality of life level of children (8-12 years) undergoing (T) and off (HT) oncological treatments by using the French and the Portuguese modular versions of the Child Quality of Life Systemic Inventory (QLSI-C©). The Portuguese sample consists of 26 children T and 14 HT while the Belgian sample includes 20 children T and 35 HT. Results demonstrate statistically significant differences between the T and HT groups, particularly for the French version of the QLSI-C©. They also give evidence of the influence of some clinical and sociodemographic variables on the global quality of life score, mainly for the Portuguese version of the QLSI-C©. In conclusion, findings demonstrate the clinical interest of French and Portuguese versions of the QLSI-C© and their capacity to distinguish children undergoing oncological treatments from children off these treatments.

The present study aims to identify clinical predictors of paediatric cancer patients’ quality of life (QOL). Children with cancer, aged from 8 to 12 years old (n=40), completed the Quality of Life Systemic Inventory – Module for Cancer - QLSI-C© (Etienne, Dupuis, Spitz, Lemétayer, & Missotten 2011; Fonseca, & Spitz, 2011; Missotten, Fonseca, Dupuis, Lemétayer, Spitz, & Etienne) and a socio-demographic questionnaire. Results show that diagnosis’ type, time after diagnosis and the fact of relapse or not accounts for 21,7% of generic QOL variance and 30,9% of specific QOL variance. Findings support that paediatric cancer patients with a diagnosis of solid tumour, a more recent diagnosis, and those who relapse are in a more vulnerable situation regarding their QOL and therefore need more attention by doctors and caregivers.

The objective was to determine the interest and psychometric properties of a new QOL self-assessment questionnaire suitable for children 8–12 years old measuring alpha, beta and gamma changes: the ‘‘Inventaire Syste´mique de Qualite´ de vie pour Enfants’’ (ISQV-E ). This was a cross-sectional validation study. 288 children have completed the ISQV-E. Other tools were used: The ‘‘Autoquestionnaire de Qualite´ de Vie Enfants Image´’’ (AUQUEI), the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory for Children (STAIC), the Children’s Depression Inventory (CDI). The internal consistency of the four scores of the ISQV-E (state, goal, rank and gap) is satisfactory. All scores have their own specificity. The data show the convergent validity, sensitivity and applicability of the ISQV-E. On the other hand, no satisfactory factorial structure was found although a multidimensional theoretical perspective was applied. The feasibility of the ISQV-E seems clearly demonstrated and the value of this new tool seems evident in contexts of physical, psychological or social problems. The validation study was promising but certain points such as test–retest reliability remain to be studied. [less ▲]

Purpose The study of children’s illness perceptions has been widely developed over de last decade (Chateaux, 2005). More recently research has focussed on the impact of illness perceptions on Quality of Life (QoL). The present communication aims to analyse the impact of illness perceptions of children with cancer on Generic and Modular QoL. Authors put forward the hypothesis that the several dimensions of children’s illness perceptions may influence QoL in different ways. Methods The Brief Illness Perception Questionnaire (Broadbent et al.,2006) and the Quality of Life Systemic Inventory for Children - Module for Cancer (Missotten et al., 2008) were administered to 40 children with cancer, aged from 8 to 12 years, at a paediatric hospital. Specifically developed for children from these ages, the QoL measure is a self-assessment questionnaire that provides a general and a modular score (general domains of QoL and domains of QoL related with cancer). Results Multiple regressions highlighted that five dimensions of children’s cancer perceptions are significant predictors of QoL, namely illness “consequences”, “identity”, “concerns”, “coherence” and “timeline”. The most predictable dimension of both general and modular QoL is “cancer consequences”: it explains 36% (Beta=.51; p=.01) of the general and 47% (Beta=.70; p=.01) of the modular QoL variance. Children reporting a less threatening view about the consequences of cancer in their lives reveal a better QoL. Conclusions The framework of the present study has its fundamentals on recent literature developments by presenting a modular approach to QoL assessment. Results revealed that illness perceptions of children with cancer play an important role both on general QoL and QoL more directly related with cancer and treatments. Through the analysis of the influence of cancer perceptions on QoL, findings provide information to design intervention to promote QoL among paediatric cancer patients. [less ▲]
