Validation of the M.D. Anderson Symptom Inventory-Spine Tumor Module
If you agree to take part in this study, you will complete the M. D. Anderson Symptom
Inventory-Spine Tumor Module survey. This survey will ask you to rate the severity of
certain symptoms you may have had in the last 24 hours on a scale of 0 (not present) to 10
(the most severe you can imagine). You will also be asked to rate how your symptoms get in
the way of your daily activities using the same 0 to 10 scale. This survey should take
about 10-15 minutes to complete.
Information regarding your clinical history (tumor type, location, treatment, and other
medications) and demographic information (age, gender, ethnicity, religion, educational
level, and marital status) will also be collected. This information will be used to
evaluation whether there is an association between symptom severity and these factors.
Once you have completed the survey, your participation on this study will be over.
This is an investigational study. Up to 128 patients will take part in this study. All will
be enrolled at M. D. Anderson.
