Abstract

The development and standardization of the Women's Health Questionnaire (WHQ) is described. The questionnaire is reliable and has reasonable concurrent validity. It is sensitive to detecting change; this has been evaluated in both hormone replacement therapy studies and studies of non medical treatments. The WHQ is currently being used in a wide range of studies in Europe and North America. It is available in several European languages. Current applications include the evaluation of a health education intervention, evaluation of prospective hormone replacement therapy trials and a psychometric and cultural comparison of responses to the WHQ in several European countries.
