    Abstract

    There have been few longitudinal studies of quality of life in patients with all stages of lung cancer, particularly those that have included measures of utility. The purpose of this study was to examine the psychometric properties of the Assessment of Quality of Life instrument (AQoL) in patients with lung cancer. The AQoL is a health-related quality of life questionnaire and provides a descriptive system for a multi-attribute utility instrument (MAU), so that scores can be used in cost-utility evaluations.
