In the assessment of mucositis, the inter-evaluator variability needs to be minimised and would likely to be best accomplished by training. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of training on concordance of evaluators in scoring oral mucositis. The evaluators were informed about the pathobiology and clinical appearance of mucositis and were trained in scoring mucositis according the Oral Mucositis Assessment Scale (OMAS). The effect of the training was evaluated by a pre- and post… CONTINUE READING
