Patients with a PPS (palliative performance scale) score [less than or equal to] 40 points, for whom a drastic decrease in HRQoL is expected, and those who did not voluntarily agree to participate in the study by signing an informed consent form were also excluded.
** Article based on the degree thesis entitled "Factors determining quality of life in patients with cancer-related neuropathic pain whose PPS (Palliative Performance Scale) score is higher than 40 at the SOLCA (Society for the Fight Against Cancer) Hospital, Quito Centre, in the period from January to February 2014", presented at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Ecuador in 2014.
The Palliative Performance Scale (PPS) (Anderson, Downing, Hill, Casorso, & Lerch, 1996), a modification of the Karnofsky Performance Scale (KPS), measures the decline in function seen in terminal patients as they approach death.
Six variables correlated significantly (p < 0.05) with QOL: dialysis symptoms, anxiety, depression, fatigue, palliative performance scale, and general health perception.
Function was measured with two instruments, the Inventory of Functional Status-Dialysis (IFS-D) and the Palliative Performance Scale (PPS).
Is the Palliative Performance Scale a useful predictor of mortality in a heterogeneous hospice population?
Description: The clinical pathway was created based on current evidence using the Palliative Performance Scale (PPS) and the Edmonton Symptom Assessment Scale (ESAS) tools to trigger the sequencing and timing of therapeutic interventions at different stages of the patients' disease.
A nurse could apply the Karnofsky or Palliative Performance Scale when evaluating functional status.
