dc.descriptionSchag & Heinrich in their study describe the development process of the Cancer Rehabilitation Evaluation System (CARES) Scale, which is usefully used with cancer patients. CARES Scale measures the occurrence of change/problems in 5 dimensions: Physical; psychosocial; marital; medical interaction; sexual. CARES Scale includes 139 problems rated on 5 point scale, where 0 represent “not at all” and 4 represent that problem occurred “very much”. The authors indicate the first 88 items could be used with all patients, however, the last 51 mostly applicable to certain patients under specific situations. Authors detailed the scale in the Appendix 1 in the same volume of the journal (p. 209)en_US
