0 Reviews
This updated and revised edition assesses the outcome of disease and treatments, the relevancy of measurement scales to their specific effects, and necessites the use of disease specific questionnaires. There is considerable interest in measures which are multi-dimensional, and which are more sensitive than generic measures to specific disease and treatment effects.
