Methods for assessing quality of life in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis
Romuald Wielgosz, Edward Mroczkowski

The health related quality of life is increasingly used as an
outcome in clinical trials, for evaluation of effectiveness of
treatment and health care. What is the best questionnaire? The
choice of assessment method depends on the purpose of the
study. The use of health-related quality of life measures facilitates
the choice of optimal treatment for individual patients and
enables economic analysis. The general methods are useful to
document the severity of disability in the general population or in
a patient group. Specific methods focus on problems associated
with single disease states (rhinosinusits, asthma), patient groups
(age), function (sleep disorders) or a problem (pain).
Assessment of quality of life enables to extend the evaluation of
final outcome of a treatment by the aspect of patient’s subjective
sensations; it should constitute an integral part of medical
procedures also in otolaryngology.
