          Abstract

          Focusing on outcomes of care alone may be too restrictive. Patients can experience morbidity that is important to them from health care processes themselves. However, many processes, such as testing and screening, have been little evaluated. This study's purpose was to assess the construct validity of a new preference-based index, the Testing Morbidities Index (TMI), by comparing two common cancer-related procedures in prior publications: screening colonoscopy and core-needle breast biopsy.
