Abstract

Methods. The Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) was translated into Thai and its validity and applicability were assessed in 22 Thai patients withactive rheumatoid arthritis (RA) before and after 6 months of treatment with disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs). The activities in threesubcategories of the Thai HAQ were modified, including Eating, Hygiene andActivities. Two common activities in Thai people were incorporated into the items in the Grip and Arising domains. Results. Significant improvements in mean HAQ scores and other parameters were observed after DMARD therapy. Mean HAQ scores correlated significantlywith tender joint count, patient global and physician global assessments, and grip strength. Conclusions. The Thai HAQ met validity requirements and can be used in themeasurement of functional capacity of Thai RA patients.
