Webinar Description:

The MOS-HIV is a brief, comprehensive health status measure containing 35 questions that measure 10 dimensions of health: general health perceptions, pain, physical functioning, role functioning, social functioning, energy/fatigue, mental health, health distress, cognitive function, and quality of life. A single item is also included to assess health transition.

Subscales of the MOS-HIV are scored as summated rating scales on a 0 to 100 scale; higher scores indicate better health. In addition to these subscales, two summary scores can be generated: physical health summary and mental summary scores. The instrument takes approximately five minutes to complete and can be self-administered. Alternatively, it can be given as a face-to-fact or telephone interview.

The MOS-HIV is available in 14 languages and has been included as a secondary outcome measure in numerous clinical trials for all stages of disease. In several studies it has detected significant differences between treatments; in some cases concordant with conventional end-points and, in others, discordant. The interpretation of scores is facilitated by an explanation in terms meaningful to the intended audience.
