Abstract

The aim of this study was to develop a short questionnaire measuring health‐related quality of life (HRQoL) in chronic wounds. Three validated instruments assessing HRQoL in chronic wounds—the Freiburg Life Quality Assessment for wounds, the Cardiff Wound Impact Schedule, and the Würzburg Wound Scor...
