Abstract

The Stanford Health Assessment Questionnaire was modified for use amongst British patients by the substitution of colloquial expressions. Completion of the modified questionnaire was shown to be simplified compared with the original. Results correlated well with scores obtained at interview and were shown to be more sensitive to patients' functional changes than the Steinbrocker grading.
