Summary
In health care, quality-of-life surveys and questionnaires related to care are becoming increasingly important as a measure of its quality. There is currently no Spanish version of the UnitéRhumatologique des Affections de la Main (URAM) scale, which makes it suitable for hand pathology. The purposes of this study are to develop a Spanish version of the URAM and perform a transcultural adaptation of it, analyzing the result for reliability, validity, and sensitivity to changes. Methods: The questionnaire was evaluated for patients with Dupuytren’s disease and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The cohort study subjects were interviewed at three points in time.
