Abstract

Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) assessment is important in healthcare outcomes. This study aimed to determine the feasibility, reliability and validity of the Malay McGill Quality of Life Questionnaire - Cardiff Short Form (MMQOL-CSF) in advanced cancer population. Patients either completed the MMQOL-CSF alone or in addition to its long version. The study recruited 116 participants (average age = 44 years old). On average, MMQOL-CSF was completed in 5.4 minutes. Most domains showed evidence of reliability (Cronbach's α = 0.76-0.92). Correlation with its long version was moderate to strong (rs- = 0.54-0.87). The MMQOL-CSF was a feasible, reliable and valid HRQoL instrument in this population.
