Rating scales for researchers
Between 1999-2005 an interdisciplinary team of clinicians, epidemiologists and psychologists developed four patient-reported outcomes tools that explored the effect of sex hormones on health and aging. As part of ZEG Berlin’s committment to improving the transparency and quality of epidemiological research, the scales are provided here for use by researchers in their work. All scales are based on the Health Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) concept and assess specific health concerns that can be difficult to derive from other sources.
