Abstract:
Topic: The Comprehensive Inventory of Functioning-Cancer (CIF-CA) is a major revision of the Inventory of Functional Status-Cancer, which has been used in numerous studies in the US and abroad. Purpose The Comprehensive Inventory of Functioning-Cancer (CIF-CA) was developed to measure both the desired and the actual levels of functional status in women with cancer. The new scale incorporates the desired level of functioning in the measurement of functional status. Framework: The CIF-CA is based in the role function adaptation mode of the Roy Adaptation Model. Six subscales measure women's performance of personal care, family care, household, social and community and occupational activities following diagnosis of cancer (actual functional status) and the level at which they wish to perform those activities (desired functional status). Methods: Reliability and construct validity estimates were obtained from a sample of 190 women diagnosed with breast, lung, or colon cancer within the past two years. Findings: The entire range of scores was used for all subscales except for the personal care activities subscale, which was slightly restricted at the low end. Estimates of internal consistency reliability were adequate for most item to subscale coefficients (.68 to .93 for actual functional status; .61 to .85 for desired functional status) and for most subscale to total scale coefficients (.46 to .86 for actual functional status; .62 to .83 for desired functional status). Initial construct validity coefficients, using subscale-to-subscale correlations, were .10 to .61 for actual functional status and .33 to .62 for desired functional status. As expected, those correlations were relatively low, indicating that the subscales measured separate dimensions of functional status. Implications: Further testing of the CIF-CA in women with other types of cancer is recommended. Development of a version for men is also recommended. Assessment of functional status with the CIF-CA provides the basis for nursing interventions to assist patients to adjust to changes in performance of usual activities and promote desired optimal performance. Assessment of patients' actual and desired functional status is also an important outcome of nursing and medical interventions.
