The NHP is a general patient reported outcome measure which seeks to measure subjective health status. It is a questionnaire designed to measure a patient’s view of their own health status, in a number of areas. It can be completed in 5 minutes. The NHP consists of two parts. The first part focuses on health and comprises 38 items which deal with pain, energy, sleep, mobility, emotional reaction and social isolation. The second part focuses on life areas affected and consists of 7 items which deal with problems regarding occupation, housework, social life, family life, sexual function, hobbies and holidays. The second part of the NHP is optional and can be omitted without ruining the test results. All questions have only yes/no answer options and each section score is weighted.
