The HAQ-II is a psychometrically improved 10-item version of the standard HAQ functional questionnaire. It is simpler and faster to administer and score, thereby reducing patient burden. HAQ-II is better correlated with clinical measures than the HAQ and is sensitive to change. The HAQ-II is suitable for use in the clinic and research studies.
