dc.descriptionKarnofsky Performance Status Scale (KPS) is helpful in estimating the change in patient performance on three domains: Activity level; ability to work; and ability of self-care. Measuring the patient‘s ability to perform ordinary activities is rated on 11 levels. The total score ranged from 0=Dead to 100=Normal. In the above cited article, authors re-examine the validity and reliability of KPS items to maximize its effectiveness.en_US
