Abstract

Health-related quality of life was assessed using two questionnaires in 60 patients treated for schizophrenia. Scores obtained using the two tools turned out to be correlated. Moreover, some associations were found between the level of quality of life and mental state improvement, related to the type of scale, nature of symptoms, and time of measurement (prior to or after treatment).
