Are the WHOQOL-HIV-Bref and 15D adequate measures of quality of life in HIV-infected adults?
The WHOQOL-HIV-Bref has been widely used in the assessment of quality of life (QoL) in HIV, but it has never been simultaneously evaluated with any generic health-related QoL (HRQoL) instrument. The aim of this study was to test the psychometric properties of the WHOQOL-HIV-Bref and compare it with the generic 15D HRQoL instrument in a sample of Finnish HIV-infected patients.
