Psycho-Oncology, 21, 571–587 Primary use / Purpose: The Attitude Follow-Up Scale (AFS) is a 19-item inventory rated on a 4 point Likert-type scale. Its purpose is to measure the attitudes of cancer patients towards follow-up. Patients’ attitudes are measured under four dimensions: communication (with a physician), reassurance, nervous anticipation, and perceived disadvantages of the follow-up process. Background: A substantial amount of research exists on the well-being and quality of life associated with clinical samples, especially those diagnosed with cancer. However, little research has specifically studied the physical and psychological outcomes associated with follow-up procedures between patient and physician. To address this, Stiggelbout, de Haes, & Vree et al. (1997) tweaked an existing scale developed by Kiebert, Welvaart, Kievit (1993) and ended up with the Attitude Follow-Up Scale (AFS). Psychometrics: The psychometric properties of the Attitude Follow-Up Scale (AFS) are discussed in Stiggelbout, de Haes, & Vree et al. (1997). Digital Object Identifier (DOI):

Primary use / Purpose: The Silver Lining Questionnaire measures the extent to which people believe their illness has had a positive benefit despite the negative consequences of being ill. Research suggests that this positive interpretation is not due to a form of self-delusion but instead reflects personal growth and that it can be enhanced by the context. Its role in recovery from illness is complex. Web link to tool: The Silver Lining Questionnaire Digital Object Identifier (DOI):

Primary use / Purpose: The Caregiver Quality of Life Index- Cancer (CQOLC) scale is a 35-item cancer-specific instrument that assesses the carer of a cancer patient's quality of life, that is, some of the physical, social, emotional, and financial aspects of well-being, and functioning. Background: A panoply of instruments measuring caregiver burden have been developed since Zarit, Reever, and Bach-Peterson's (1980) pioneering study investigating carer strain using the Zarit Burden interview. Yet, a dearth of studies exist for parsing the physical, emotional, social and financial well-being of the carer. McMillan (1996) designed a valid and reliable caregiver quality of life index to study such constructs in the partner of the patient. Later, Weitzner and colleagues (1999) modified this scale to serve as a well-being outcome measure specifically for carers of cancer patients. Psychometrics: The CQOLC possesses acceptable validity, test-retest reliability and internal consistency (see Weitzner, Jacobsen, Wagner, Friedland, & Cox, 1999). Other Information: Scoring instructions: items 4, 10, 12, 16, 22, 27, 28 and 34 on questionnaire should be reversed scored. Digital Object Identifier (DOI):

Itemgroup: Satisfaction With Life Scale-Child (SWLS-C)

Retrieved 25.06.2020, from Key references: Gadermann, A. M., Schonert-Reichl, K. A., & Zumbo, B. D. (2010). Investigating validity evidence of the Satisfaction with Life Scale adapted for Children.

Primary use / Purpose: The Satisfacation with Life Scale- Child (SWLS-C) is designed to measure children's judgements of their satisfaction with their life. Background: Gadermann et al. (2010) highlight several reasons why the study of children's life satisfaction is important. These include the development of a greater understanding of children's subjective well-being and its correlates, the monitoring of children's subjective well-being, and for the development of interventions to improve the well-being of children. Gadermann and colleagues (2010) adapted The Satisfaction with Life Scale (Diener, Emmons, Larsen, & Griffin, 1985), one of the most commonly used measures of life satisfaction in adults, for use with children between the ages of 9 and 14. The wording of the items and the response format was changed to make the scale more understandable for children. The resulting scale contains 5 items, each rated on a five-point likert scale from disagree a lot to agree a lot. Psychometrics: Gadermann et al. (2010) presents support for the psychometric properties of the instrument. SCORING: SWLS-C items are scored on a 5-point scale ranging from 1 (“disagree a lot”) to 5 (“agree a lot”) then added together yielding a total score ranging from 5 to 25.
