Reference Values

The key to interpreting patient-reported health-related quality of life scores for use in person-centered healthcare approaches in clinical practice is having reference data to place the scores in the context of a meaningful reference group.
Norms for the MacNew, generated on 1.506 English-speaking Australian patients with IHD, have been available since 2002. Based on an international sample of 6.130 adult patients with angina, or MI or heart failure living in 22 countries an update to MacNew reference data have been provided.
