Abstract : Patient-reported health-related quality of life (Hr-QoL) is an essential end-point to assess the efficacy of multiple sclerosis (MS) treatment. Most QoL tools were developed for clinical research, for which measurement accuracy is required, irrespective of ease of use or the human resources needed. In routine medical practice (RMP), time and resources are limited, requiring simple and quick tools. Our objective was to set up a Hr-QoL measurement adapted for patients with MS, and providing an accurate estimate of Hr-QoL, whilst remaining easy to use and interpret in the RMP context.
