dc.description.abstractThe use of assessment tools for quality of life has allowed the incorporation of the views of patients in health decision-making. This article presents the characteristics and changes experienced by one of the most used questionnaires of quality of life, at present: the Short Form 36-item Health Survey (SF-36). We also discuss the issues related to the construction, properties and applications of this measuring tool and other derived measures as: the SF-12, the SF-8, the Dynamic Health Assessment (DYNHA) and the SF-6D. We emphasize the use of the SF-36 for assessing the effectiveness of interventions in health, the SF-12 for the tracking of health disorders, the SF-8 for the monitoring of population health; the DYNHA for individualized evaluations in clinical practice and the SF-6D for economic analysis in health. Information on the versions validated for Portuguese language and the permission to use the questionnaires are provided.en
