Table 8 Increase in VEINES-QOL scores for those who have healed and those who have not healed after 4 months, with responsiveness coefficient

From: Validation of the VEINES-QOL quality of life instrument in venous leg ulcers: repeatability and validity study embedded in a randomised clinical trial

Scale Healed Not healed Healed minus not healeda Responsivenessb
Mean SD Mean SD Difference 95 % CI P

  1. aBigger changes in those who have healed than in those who have not healed indicate that healing is associated with change in reported quality of life
  2. ba value greater than zero (maximum is 1.00) indicates that the scale responds to changes over time
