This paper presents MIDs to aid the interpretation of EORTC QLQ-C30 change scores in patients with advanced colorectal cancer, treated with chemotherapy. This work is part of the EORTC MID project that aims to gather empirical evidence on patterns of MID estimates across EORTC QLQ-C30 scales and disease sites. Our findings support evidence that scale specific MIDs should be selected with caution.
