This text is intended to supplement the author's previous work, Measuring Health - A Review of Quality of Life Measurement Scales. In assessing the outcomes of disease and treatments, measurement scales must be relevant to their specific effects. Generic health-related quality of life, or health status, scales will need to be supplemented with, or replaced by, disease-specific items and scales.
