A scientific committee, in a face-to-face start-up meeting, debated the main diagnostic and treatment strategies of OIC in cancer patients, as well as those aspects related to their quality of life. As a result of the debate, a questionnaire of 67 items was made in the following subjects: 1) Diagnosis of OIC (21 items); 2) Treatment of OIC (38 items); and 3) Quality of life of cancer patients with OIC (8 items).

A nine point ordinal Likert-type scale was used for the purpose of answer to the items, as stated by the model developed by UCLA-RAND Corporation (minimum 1, full disagreement; and maximum 9, full agreement) [21]. The scale was structured in three groups, according to the level of agreement-disagreement of the item: from 1 to 3, it means a rejection or disagreement; from 4 to 6, no agreement or disagreement; and from 7 to 9, interpreted as expression of agreement or support.
