PozQoL Scale — Quality of life among people with HIV
The English version of PozQoL:
- Was validated on a sample of 465 adult Australians living with HIV (2016-2018)
- Was piloted in 10 Australian organisations that work with people living with HIV (2018-2019)
- Is being used in various settings
If you use the English version of PozQoL, we would love to hear from you.
The Implementation Kit was co-designed by organisations that were part of the PozQoL Usability Trial. It provides information about how to use the PozQoL Scale in practice.
The Simple PozQoL Calculator is a spreadsheet that calculates PozQoL Scores for one person at a time.
The Pre-Post Group PozQoL Calculator is a spreadsheet that calculates and compares baseline and follow-up group PozQoL Scores.
