Quality of Life for Patients Diagnosed with Diabetic Foot

November 1, 2013

I recently had an interesting conversation with a colleague regarding the use of the Patient-Reported Outcome Measure (PROM) for diabetic foot–related problems. Essentially, the discussion focused on whether a generic health-related quality of life (HRQOL) assessment tool such as the Medical Outcomes Study 36-item Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36) is sufficient to fully capture the quality of life experienced by a patient with diabetic foot problems. He suggested the need to use an additional region-specific HRQOL assessment tool because the SF-36 is not specific enough to reflect the unique issues encountered in the diabetic foot and ankle
