MACNEW QUALITY OF LIFE QUESTIONNAIRE PDF

Abstract The aim of this study is to validate the Danish, Norwegian and Swedish versions of the self-administered MacNew Heart Disease Health-related Quality of Life questionnaire in patients with ischemic heart disease. The multidimensionality of the MacNew was confirmed although the original three-factor solution did not fully meet the criteria for good fit.

The MacNew is a modification of the original interviewer-administered Quality of Life after Myocardial Infarction [QLMI] instrument originally developed on a series of moderately anxious and depressed patients who had recovered from an acute myocardial infarction.

The MacNew is designed to evaluate the impact of treatment, including cardiac rehabilitation, and has been shown to be valid, reliable and responsive, is simple to administer and well-accepted by patients, and normative data are available for patients with myocardial infarction, angina pectoris, and heart failure. There are substantial correlations between the MacNew and other HRQL measures and moderate to strong concordance with predictions about how the instrument should behave as a valid and reliable measure of HRQL.

Correlations between the MacNew and other measures provide moderate to strong evidence of its ability to discriminate between patients following myocardial infarction according to their HRQL and in measuring changes in HRQL over time. It also has been validated in Chinese, Dutch, English and German in patients with heart failure. Although the MacNew has been favorably reviewed against a selection of other heart disease-specific HRQL instruments there are plans to confirm its psychometric properties in a large international cohort of patients with heart disease.

Predictors of health-related quality of life have been identified, and poor health-related quality of life on the MacNew is an independent predictor of later mortality and morbidity. With rehabilitation, the time course of recovery of health-related quality of life, using the MacNew, is more rapid than that of exercise tolerance. There is a valid and responsive measure of health-related quality of life for spouses of survivors of an acute myocardial infarction. In addition to English, the MacNew is available in the following languages.

Martin Dempster: ku. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Abstract Background A previous review suggested that the MacNew Quality of Life Questionnaire was the most appropriate disease-specific measure of health-related quality of life among people with ischaemic heart disease. However, there is ambiguity about the allocation of items to the three factors underlying the MacNew and the factor structure has not been confirmed previously among the people in the UK.
