Validation de la version française du questionnaire THYCA-QoL évaluant la qualité de vie des patients atteints d'un cancer de la thyroïde

Abstract : Background: Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is an important outcome in oncology. To date, there is no specific questionnaire to evaluate the HRQoL for thyroid cancer in French. The translation into French of such a tool, THYCA-QoL, was the subject of a previous work. This study aimed to validate the psychometric properties of the French version of the THYCA-QoL questionnaire. Methods: The THYCA-QoL is composed of 24 items and is divided into 7 dimensions and 6 single items. The THYCA-QoL and QLQ-C30 of the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) were mailed to thyroid cancer patients undergoing surgery. The data obtained were tested for acceptability, reliability and validity to validate the French translated version of the THYCA-QoL questionnaire. Results: 280 patients were included from January 2015 to January 2019 in University Institute of Face and Neck of Nice. The low number of missing data (0.007%) showed a good acceptability of the questionnaire. All dimensions exhibited a good internal consistency with a Cronbach’s alpha ≥ 0.70, except the neuromuscular dimension. No floor or ceiling effects were observed. Factorial validity was demonstrated for 5 scales out of 7, using a multitrait-multimethod analysis and an exploratory factor analysis. Criterion validity assessed between the THYCA-QoL and QLQ-C30 was satisfactory. Conclusion: The French THYCA-QoL questionnaire is a reliable and valid assessment tool that used with the EORTC QLQ-C30 allows to evaluate the HRQoL of thyroid cancer patient in France.
