PURPOSE: The MFI was developed in 1995 to assess fatigue as a multidimensional concept. This questionnaire has been widely translated and used; however, its multidimensional structure has not been consistent across studies. In addition there is a need for short questionnaires in the clinical context. Therefore, we aim to develop a MFI-short version which is easy-to-use for the patient, quick for the clinician, with solid psychometric properties. METHODS: We examined three MFI-20 validated versions and tested their structure, by leading a CFA on 422 cancer patients to evaluate their psychometric qualities (Study 1)...

PURPOSE: Health services across the world utilise advanced practice in cancer care. In the UK, lung cancer nurse specialists (LCNS) are recognised as key components of quality care in national guidelines, yet access to LCNS contact is unequal and some responsibilities are reportedly left undone. We assess whether any variation in working practices of LCNS is attributable to factors of the lung cancer service at the hospital trust. METHOD: Nationwide workload analysis of LCNS working practices in England, linked at trust level to patient data from the National Lung Cancer Audit...
