Health-related quality of life questionnaire in 25 languages

  • Outcome Assessment is essential to providing quality health care.
  • Patient-reported outcomes are an integral component of outcome assessment.
  • Health-related quality of life, symptoms, and functional status make up patient-reported outcomes.

Through its prevention implementation programme, The European Association of Preventive Cardiology (EAPC) developed HeartQoL, a health-related quality of life questionnaire, which is now available in 25 languages, for students, academic and non-academic researchers.

Testimonials from investigators 

From Belgium

"At the University of Hasselt, we use the HeartQoL for research concerning tele-rehabilitation. The questionnaire is quite sensitive to changes in quality of life, and very well adapted to the diverse cardiac population studied" - Professor Paul Dendale and Doctor Ines Frederix

From Denmark

"Our group has collected data to validated the questionnaire in a broader group of people suffering from cardiac disease. The first paper is published in Atrial Fibrillation. We have further demonstrated that the questionnaire can be used in ICD as well as following valvular surgery. These results are yet to be published. Finally, we have the data to look into the group of patients with infectious endocarditis" - Professor Ann-Dorthe Zwisler
