QUALITY OF LIFE ASSESSMENT
BAHNO is actively involved in promoting the assessment of outcomes in head and neck cancer. The measurement of health related quality of life is an important part of this process and, following a presentation at the 2001 Annual Meeting, BAHNO Council is recommending the adoption of the University of Washington questionnaire as part of the minimum dataset. Further information and details of useful websites are given in a summary prepared by Simon Rogers .
