Quality-Adjusted Life Years definition: A measurement index derived from a modification of standard life-table procedures and designed to take account of the quality as well as the duration of survival. This index can be used in assessing the outcome of health care procedures or services. (BIOETHICS Thesaurus, 1994)
Quality Adjusted Life Years definition: A measure of the health of a population that combines an assessment of both mortality and disability. (Taber's)
Adjustment definition: The act of making necessary corrections or modifications.
Age-adjusted PSA definition: Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level defined according to specific age groups or ranges, which takes into account the natural increase of PSA levels with increased age.
Age-Adjusted Incidence Rate definition: The rate of disease occurrence, or proportion of disease occurrences in a given population, during a specified time period, statistically modified to eliminate the effect of the various age distributions.
Age-Adjusted Mortality Rate definition: The death rate, or proportion of a given population that dies, during a specified time period, statistically modified to eliminate the effect of the various age distributions.
Adjusted Bonferroni Correction definition: A multiple comparison adjustment method where the p-values are ranked in descending order. For the highest p-value, the critical p-value becomes (alpha/n), where n is the number of outcomes being tested; for the second-highest p-value, the critical p-value will be (alpha/n-1), and so on. The stringency of this correction falls somewhere between no correction and the Standard Bonferroni.
