We evaluated a generic quality of life (QoL) Functional Status Questionnaire (FSQ), in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). The FSQ assesses the 3 main dimensions of QoL: physical functioning, mental health and social role. It also includes 6 single item questions about: work status, frequency of social interactions, satisfaction with sexual relationships, days in bed, days with restricted activity and overall satisfaction with health status. The FSQ was compared to the Minnesota Living with Heart Failure questionnaire (MLwHF).
