Table 3 Distribution of Raw CTCAE Ratings when PRO-CTCAE Pain ratings all 1, 2, or 3 (n = 83)

From: Application of a Bayesian graded response model to characterize areas of disagreement between clinician and patient grading of symptomatic adverse events

  CTCAE Pain Grade
PRO-CTCAE Pain Rating    
Frequency Severity Interference 1 2 3
‘rarely’ ‘mild’ ‘a little bit’ 21 3 0
‘occasionally’ ‘moderate’ ‘somewhat’ 27 8 0
‘frequent’ ‘severe’ ‘quite a bit’ 9 10 5
  1. Note: This example represents respondents for which CTCAE and PRO-CTCAE pain was captured, and where frequency, severity and interference were rated as all 1, 2, or 3 by patients
