Abstract

Objective: The purpose of this study was to translate, culturally validate and evaluate the Patients Concerns Inventory - Head and Neck (PCI- H&N) in a consecutive series of Brazilian patients. Methods: This study included adult patients treated for upper aerodigestive tract (UADT) cancer. The translation and cultural adaptation of the PCI–H&N followed internationally accepted guidelines and included a pretest sample of patients that completed the first Brazilian-Portuguese version of the PCI. The use/feasibility/acceptability of the PCI was tested subsequently in a consecutive series of UADT cancer patients that completed the final Brazilian-Portuguese version of the PCI and a Brazilian-Portuguese version of the University of Washington Quality of Life Questionnaire (UW-QOL). Associations between physical and socio emotional composite scores from the UW-QOL and PCI were analyzed. Results: Twenty patients participated in the pretest survey (translation and cultural adaptation process), and 84 patients were analysed in the cultural validation study. Issues most selected were: fear of cancer returning, dry mouth, chewing/eating, speech/voice/being understood, swallowing, dental health/teeth, anxiety, fatigue/tiredness, taste and fear of adverse events. The three specialists most selected were speech therapist, dentist and psychologist. Statistically significant relationships between PCI and UW-QOL were found. Conclusions: The translation and cultural adaptation of the PCI for Brazilian-Portuguese language was successful, and the results demonstrate its feasibility and usefulness, making this a valuable tool for use within the Brazilian H&N cancer population.
