Abstract

Outcomes are difficult to measure in chronic degenerative illnesses, since clinical criteria are not adequate to precisely assess patients' functional status and well being. The use of psychometric scales has been proposed as a tool for a better assessment of health status. To be useful, such scales should detect differences between a healthy and a pathological population and give different scores for patients with different degrees of a disease. In this study the Italian translation of a well tested questionnaire, Ware's short from 36 (SF-36), has been validated. What still needs to be documented is whether the results of such a test, confronting doctors with their patients' opinions about their health status, could be used effectively to modify clinical approach and therapeutic strategies. The very few studies that have addressed the question are not encouraging.
